Hi, I’m Jared. I run this joint.
What is Weird Dad?
As a father of 3 hooligans, being a Dad has consumed most of my identity. I’m ok with that. They’re kinda the light of my life. Plus, I get lots of raw material to write about out of the deal. BONUS!
I’ve also been called weird a lot over the years. My wife reinforces the notion pretty often. The word is never that far from her lips. She has a few other choice words for me, but whatever, she picked me. LOL. I’m proud to be her weirdo.
Weird is also this cool and complex word with different meanings.
When it comes to people, weirdness is about what makes each of us unique. All of us have these splendid qualities unlike any other. I think that’s neat, and I love finding out what makes people their true weird selves.
It’s about letting your freak flag fly—whatever that looks like to you.
Plus, everyone showing up here, bare minimum, is headlong into adulthood. Most of us also have families of our own.
I think we all look out into the reality of being grown-up and think, “This shit is weird.”
Nothing quite prepares you for it, and I don’t think any of us really ever feel like we know what we’re doing.
It’s all bizarre and unsettling and wonderful.
If you feel that way too, then cool. We’re homies now.
Welcome to my corner of the internet.
Let’s talk about the world of parenting, marriage, and adulthood.
Let’s get weird.
Also, while you’re here…
