They call me James. Born and raised in Southern Missouri. I am a nerdy tech dude by day, but first and foremost a Dad and husband. My family has a unique lifestyle. Some call it "natural", some call it "crunchy", some call it "attachment", and some call it damn crazy, but in the end, we just follow our instincts and want what's best for our kids. We cloth diaper, baby wear, visit chiropractors, eat a gluten free, mostly organic diet, garden our own veggies, rear-face our toddler (ask me why), watch way too much TV, and spend way too much time in front of a screen (but on the other hand, our toddler doesn't have her own phone yet!) I'm not a perfect dad, but that doesn't mean I can't try. This is my blog, my thoughts, my life. Welcome to it.
