Can a Guy Really #sweatpink at Idea World BlogFest ?  Would I Want To?

#sweatpinkI really didn’t want to go to Vegas last year for the Idea World Fitness 2017 Convention (and I was a little preoccupied with a new baby and other responsibilities).  But this year, the Idea World Fitness Convention 2018 is being held right here in America’s Finest City – San Diego, California.  I don’t want to miss it.

Stay at Home Dad Entrepreneur Podcast / Vlog: Episode 1

Hello and Welcome to Episode #1 of the Stay at Home Dad Entrepreneur Podcast / Vlog

This episode is not sponsored by Lego Land, SeaWorld or the San Diego Zoo, but very well could be – especially considering I’m broadcasting from my home studio / office / living room / home gym in Del Mar, California – just a short drive from all of those great tourist destinations – especially great if you have kids – or are a kid at heart.

I’m your host, Joe Kennedy – The Grateful Dad. I’m 55 years young (yes 55) I’ve been a stay at home dad to our 20 month old toddler Ava Kalea Kennedy, for about 6 months now and feel like the luckiest guy in the world. When I took on this role, I knew it was a very difficult job – and it has been, but I just didn’t realize that it would be so difficult to get anything else done while taking care of the baby.

Daddy Blogger Review: Lindy’s Homemade Italian Ice

Lindy's Homemade Italian Ice LemonLindy’s Homemade Italian Ice Contains Ingredients I Don’t Allow in My Home

I recently responded to a call for bloggers to get free samples to try Lindy’s Homemade Italian Ice and was sent some coupons to redeem in our local grocery store.  Being a healthy eater and careful about what types of food we have in our house, I was kind of excited about it and it is advertised to be fat-free and gluten-free.

When I got to the grocery store and checked it out, I was extremely disappointed.   Continue reading “Daddy Blogger Review: Lindy’s Homemade Italian Ice”

Let’s Talk About the 800 Pound Gorilla in the Room: What’s It Going to Be Like Being an Old Dad?

Old DadJoe Kennedy Going To Enjoy Being an Old Dad

So fun to get to write about being an old dad – and to use my name in the 3rd person …  I was going to write about popular daddy blogs today, but feel like I want to get this topic started – as there could be some interest in the topic.  What’s it going to be like being an old dad?

Before my first daughter Jacqueline was conceived, I was about 40 years old and pretty sure that I would never have children.  Then I met her mom and it turned out we both wanted a family.  It didn’t take much longer for Jackie Kennedy to come along.  In my early 40s, at that point, I was already what many would consider an old dad.

You Can Make Excuses or Create Results

Make Excuses or Create ResultsDo YOU Want to Make Excuses or Create Results? Which is Better for Your Family?

There are a lot of great quotes out there along the lines of ‘You Can Make Excuses or Create Results”.  Some might say that we are always seeing results – just not always the results that we ‘dream of’, ‘want’ or ‘wish for’.  In my mind, if we are not seeing the results that we want (which happens to pretty much everyone at some point, if not frequently), we just don’t want it bad enough.  We don’t always take the massive action that it takes to realize our BHAG (Big Hairy Audacious Goals).  Many of us, myself included, just frickin’ make excuses.  That’s not going to create the best results or outcomes for our families, is it?
