A Cute Story

This morning The Girl was lying in bed with Mom, doing the half awake, half sleeping cuddle. Her head was resting on Mom’s 3 month baby belly when Mom’s belly grumbled. The Girl shot up out of bed, big grin and wide eyed. She looked at me lying beside her and said, “The new baby tooted!”

  1. Hello Dadventure,

    I didn’t know how else to contact you. So I’m doing it via this blog.

    My name is Hogan Hilling, husband to wife, Tina, and father to three boys, Grant (18), Wesley (16) and Matthew (12). And 15 year at-home dad veteran.

    I’m co-writing a book with a mom, Jesse Rutherford. The tentative title is What Dads Want Moms To Know.

    Jesse and I have already received some great input from many fathers and are looking for other fathers who would like to contribute their experiences and/or opinions on fatherhood. And more importantly share comments on what they would like moms to know. My email address is hilling1@cox.net – Subject: Proud Dads.

    Here is your chance to voice your opinions and thoughts. Anonymously if you like.

    Feel free to forward this message to other fathers in your social circle.

    We have several publishers reviewing our proposal. One has already made us an offer. We hope to have this book available in the bookstores by summer of 2007.

    I posted a brief bio at the end of this post.
