Hello! I’m Mike. I’m a new Daddy, relatively speaking. My amazing daughter Lesli is eight going on nine months old. She’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me (Don’t tell the wife, but she’s Daddy’s favorite…other than a nicely balanced and well-aged bourbon…no I don’t mean that. Les is the best and so is my wife!) and I’m always learning something new about fatherhood. This is a place meant to learn, to have fun, to chronicle life, to explore, to emote, to discover and to help one another in all things parenting and booze. Why booze and parenting? Because as my wife and I have found, the two things go hand in hand.
