|Chris Read and his son, or is that Mario?
Thanks to Chris for use of this photo and for guesting tonight on Linked Moms chat
Ever wonder what Dads really want for Father’s Day? Ever wonder what they are really thinking? Do they like those handmade kid’s version of Hallmark cards, sweets, chocolates, picnics? Would they rather have a Big screen TV for their Father’s Day present? Some days, even after almost two decades of marriage I still feel like my husband and I are talking two different languages, so luckily tonight we have Canadian Dad blogger, and a really great guy Chris Read joining us for our on line chat.
It’s Wednesday again which means The Linked Moms are chatting up a storm and we want to know all about Dads. Dads: Drop what you are doing and join us for a bit if you can at 8 p.m. EST. Follow the hashtag #LinkedMoms on twitter to participate. Moms: come and join us and get a few clues as to what the kids can buy their Dad this year that will knock his socks off.
Chris Read is a father of two living in Ottawa, Ontario. He is the author of A Canadian Dad Blog. His daughter is 2 (AW!!!) and his son is 4. His wife is a stay-at-home day care provider and as he says “she is incredible at it.“
He started blogging after reading the book Home Game by Michael Lewis.
I had spent four years watching my kids grow and do incredibly funny and amazing things, then the book made me realize that I probably would forget most of it, if I didn`t start writing it down. As luck would have it, I had dabbled with blogging and had some great connections to help get me started. I have loved the experiences and the people so far and can`t wait to see what waits for me down the road.“
