Since the inception of TRS in 2000, I have written about life "on the road". By plane, train, or automobile, I tell the story of trips; but the real story in each one is about the journey, not the destination. On March 15th, 2008, Daddy's Little Speed Bump was born. 21 months later, Speed Bump Number Two arrived. I thought it fitting to create a place, with a Road Scholars theme, to share this new journey.

A Brief Introduction

Since the inception of The Road Scholars in 2000, I have written about life "on the road" in the United States, Canada, and Europe. Whether by plane, train, or automobile, my missives tell the story of road trips, but the real story in each one is about the journey, not the destination. That's why I thought it was fitting to start a Road Scholar blog about parenthood.

I said parenthood, not parenting: by no means is it a how-to guide and by no means am I any kind of expert. "Parenting" is a progressive verb, that's what my wife and I are undertaking. "Parenthood" is a noun describing a state of being, that's the journey I'll write about, a journey that began on Sunday, July 8th, 2007 when my wife announced to me she was pregnant (the first time).

On March 15th, 2008, daddy's little speed bump was born. 21 months later, speed bump number two arrived, just in time for a 2009 tax deduction. This is the ongoing story.
