The Clueless Dad: New Journey, New Blog and Completely Stoked

by Robb Sutton

Today marks one of the most significant days of my life…the day my wife and I get to tell everyone we are pregnant with our first kid!!!

I don’t share a lot of things about my personal life on Blogging Labs because I try to keep everything extremely focused and relevant…but this even ties in perfectly. Blogging has become an integral part of my life. It has given me a business, it has allowed me to connect with people around the world and…most importantly…it lets me do what I love.

My wife and I started our journey of starting a family a long time ago and it has been a bumpy road. Luckily, today…we had our 12 week doctors appointment and there is a tiny Sutton in there pumping away at 175 bpm!

New Journey = New Blog

Would I really be a blogger if I didn’t have a blog to go along with this new section of my life?! Hell no! So here it is…

We’ll be sharing everything we can as we take the steps into parenthood. It is going to be an exciting ride.

So our family of four is about to become five this year come October. I hope my wife is ready…she is about to have 4 kids!

Thanks! It is going to be a wild ride for sure.

Congratulations Robb! Fatherhood is a wonderful experience. You’ll love it.

Congrats my friend! As a new dad myself, let me tell you – it changes everything. Being a father will definitely make you think of things in a whole new light. And it’s a learning process! Just get ready to get even less sleep than you’re already getting! Late nights, and poopy diapers – but it’s all worth it!

It does change your life and how you view things as well! Your on point with that!

Mike Crimmins April 11, 2011 - 8:09 pm

Congrats! I’m really glad that it worked out for you. I’m sure you won’t be the clueless dad!

Congratulations Robb! I have one piece of advice, ENJOY IT! It goes by so quick, trust me on that. I have a kid who is going to graduate this year and I can’t believe it. I was 19 and can still remember finding out I was going to be a dad, wow! It has flown by and that is why I say to just enjoy it as much as you can because one day your baby is going to grow up.

Mary E. Ulrich April 11, 2011 - 8:34 pm

Congrats, but I’ll bet you aren’t really clueless–it just feels that way.

Angie Newton April 11, 2011 - 8:38 pm

Congrats to you both. The new blog should be a lot of fun.

Puneet April 11, 2011 - 9:01 pm

Congrats Robb.

Congrats, Rob, for another milestone, as a father and family man.

Chad Ferguson @CatchCatfish April 11, 2011 - 10:35 pm

Congrats. Fatherhood is the the most challenging thing you will ever do and there is no instruction manual. You just figure it out as you go.

You better start writing blog posts now because your life is going to be turned upside down.

Yay! Nothing in life brings more joy than a child. Congratulations!

Thierry April 12, 2011 - 12:07 pm

Congratulations! Its the best thing to happen in someone’s life, words cannot describe this, you will feel and understand once the baby is born! Enjoy!

Robb Sutton April 12, 2011 - 4:19 pm

Thanks everyone!! It is going to be a wild ride and we are ready for it every step of the way (well kind of…we’ll figure it out as we go!).

One of the cool parts about the process will be sharing the good, the bad and the outrageously funny with everyone as things progress. Good times indeed.

Sandra Sims April 13, 2011 - 12:36 am

You have picked the perfect name for you new blog! Every new parent is clueless. My first is only 16 months… I think we are starting to get the hang of it.

Robb Sutton April 15, 2011 - 2:58 pm

Awesome!!! Congrats Joel! How is everything going so far?

Joel Williams April 15, 2011 - 5:52 pm

It’s like a whirlwind so far, not entirely sure what day it is! Going well , it’s crazy that they don’t make you pass a test or something before we bring him home…. went from 0 diaper changes in my life to 10 a day pretty quickly! It’s fun though, a change that’s for sure ๐Ÿ™‚

Jason April 15, 2011 - 4:07 pm

Congrats Rob. It appears you’ve already mastered step one in becoming a parent, admitting you’re clueless. Great things lie ahead for you. If you think you’re motivated now to make it happen, just wait…

Michael Dunlop April 18, 2011 - 2:27 pm

Congratulations on the upcoming arrival Robb.
I have two kids (3 and 19months) and all I can say is well done and good luck ๐Ÿ™‚

I like how you have turned this into a business venture, oh and I really like the new domain name – I think it fits perfectly with ummmm – every new parent to be ๐Ÿ™‚

Robb Sutton April 26, 2011 - 11:05 am

haha! That is why I loved the domain so much! Really plays off of how we really are even if we think we have it together. Thanks Alex.
