David Wallach thinks SAHD sounds sad. He's a D.A.D. A Dad All Day! There, happy!

David has three kids and has had the fortune at one time or another to stay at home with each of them. He's here to share his stories, insights, recipes, ideas, reviews and the occasional rant. He is far from perfect, his kids are far from perfect, his life is far from perfect. All he can do is try his best and learn from the rest. David writes two other blogs for Chicagonow.com DAD - Dad All Day and The Pace of Chicago - an endurance sports blog.
