John and I used to work together in television news way before my wife was my wife and definitely way before we had the Peanut. It was obviously way before he was a stay-at-home dad. John is a photographer. As a producer, his job is crucial to my show's success because it's obviously tough to make compelling TV without pictures (video).
He's one of the best at what he does but after his wife earned a big new job, he decided to stay at home. Soon after, he started a blog. One of the coolest things he does is movies starring himself and his family as Legos. He was cool enough to do one about me (I'm wearing a tie!) and the Peanut (she has a fairy wand!) for right here on DKL:
Stay at Home Dad... Starring Legos
|Lego John visits DKL|
Sometimes you just have to get away. I recently went to Legoland where I met Darth Vader. It was the coolest thing I have ever done in my life... until now. When Justin asked me to make a guest appearance on his blog I jumped at the chance. I mean how cool is that? A Lego guy that's in demand. I'll have to get my agent involved. Anyway, when Justin told me that being a stay-at-home parent was easy, little did he know how his day would go:
Normally I would be the star of these movies. But after all, this is his blog... and a fine one at that. I couldn't in my right mind completely hijack it, so if you wish to see more of ME in action, like how I found a snake in my yard, or when I debated whether to take my kids camping, come on over to Daddy's in Charge?
John's obviously a talented a photographer and editor. The videos and pictures he posts on his blog are great. But he's a hell of a writer too. He's also fun to chat with on Facebook or Twitter because like I've said before... he's slowly losing his mind... and he's desperate for adult conversation.
If you missed my post on John's blog about my two days as a stay-at-home dad that had me begging to go back to work, you can read it here.
