Geek Dad Book Is Awesomely Geeky And Awesome

Geek is a word that has become a compliment in recent years. (Most of the time a least.) Geek Dad is a blog we like on Wired.com, and the book Geek Dad: Awesomely Geeky Projects and Activities for Dads and Kids to Share is indeed awesomely geeky as well as being just plain awesome in general.  (Note to Geek Dad editors: that wasn’t butt kissing, but I would love to contribute to your site. You know, in case you were wondering.)

I’ve actually received two copies of the Geek Dad book as gifts; not only did I not have to pretend I was pleased to receive the second copy, I didn’t even return it. Why? In case an experiment goes horrible wrong and the first copy suffers a tragic fate, I have a backup all ready to go. Highly recommended.

Mama’s Boy at Parenting.com [People We Like]

Christine Coppa is a single mom raising a little boy all by her lonesome, something that is near and dear to my heart. Why? Because that’s what my mom did. I can’t say that I know how difficult it is to be a single mom, because I am (a) married and (b) not a mom. Still, there are times in the life of any parent where they may think “ugh, this is how a single parent must feel”. When that happens to me, I think of my mom, and also Christine Coppa, who I interviewed on BlogTalkRadio awhile back.

Christine tells her story in the book Rattled!: A Memoir, which is a good read and costs less than ten bucks on Kindle.

Christine Coppa is now blogging for Parenting.com; the blog is called Mama’s Boy. Check it out!
