This blog will record my experiences and thoughts on fatherhood, child rearing and sustainable living. I make no claim to be an expert in any of these fields, but hope that through a series of ramblings I might put together something reasonably cogent for readers out there. At the very least I hope that in writing down (or should I say typing up) my own thoughts I will be able to straighten them out somewhat.
I created Rated 4 and Up as a place for me to ramble about things currently happening in my life, and the world around us. Although many of the things I will write about will involve my 4 year old son PJ, I wouldn't say this is just a daddy blog by any means. Consider it a daddy blog/guy blog/geek blog/mommy blog all rolled into one. I will post about anything and everything that is going on, or catches my eye, in the world we live in. Especially my own little world. I hope you enjoy reading the posts I write as much as I hope to enjoy writing them.
An ordinary dad with a not so ordinary life. Making it through one day at a time after my son was diagnosed with retinoblastoma, eye cancer at just 7 months of age. Currently training for my first marathon to raise awareness of childhood cancer.
This is what I feel like I am doing most of the time as a dad. They say that kids don’t come with instructions, and this couldn’t be anymore truthful. My interests are in a lot of different areas. By training I have a degree in Chemistry, but I like to tinker with a lot of stuff. Take it apart put it back together just for the heck of it. If it isn’t broke I am likely to try and fix it. Just give me a chance! My wife says I have too many hobbies, and this blog is no exception. I have had a few blogs in the past year, but I think this one is a little different. The others have involved be looking for content in a particular area, normally technology or travel related. However, this one is different in that it almost comes to me rather than me having to track it down. As a family we like to go hiking, geocaching and camping. I decided a while back that I needed to have a place to chronicle all of our travels. So, I decided to start a blog about it. We geocache under the name “Gunguy&fam, so if you see me on the trail that’s me! I am always up to the task of reviewing just about anything. I especially like Android Apps or anything techie. If you have a product that you would like to get reviewed I would jump at the chance to do it!
