Houston Family Magazine: The Makings Of A Stay-at-home Dad

You may have noticed that little bar above mentioning that I blog for Houston Family Magazine. It's something I've been wanting to announce for some time, but held off until the first issue came out. After a little prompting by Melisa at Suburban Scrawl, who told me not to be such a chicken, I got in touch with Houston Family's Editor and Co-Owner, Dana Donovan about submitting a few freelance pieces from time to time.

Yeah, that's what I said too. I am extremely grateful to Dona and the Houston Family Magazine's staff for this generous opportunity.
