Welcome to The Domestic Specialist!

This site was formally known as the Good the Dad and the Baby. That site didn’t quite fit what was I was doing anymore. For one, I had two babies instead of one. And even though they will always be my babies, they aren’t babies anymore. Plus, I’m not just a stay-at-home dad. There is so much more to my current life than the sole survival of raising two children. Hence the name change.

I’ve wanted to switch for quite some time, but I had difficulty making it a priority. This past year our life has been in transition. We found a great Japanese/English public school for the kids, but this required us to move. We sold our 100 year old house, which I had renovated and poured my heart and soul into, and moved to a brand new house. So, new school, new city, new house, and now a new blog!

Now that those changes our settling down, I’m ready to dust off my apron, take control and get back into a thoughtful routine. I’m ready to reclaim my title as “The Domestic Specialist.” (Well, it’s more like “a” domestic specialist. I know I’m not the only one crushing it at home.)

This is a place where I’ll share my stories of everyday life, recipes I’m making, triumphs and failures of crafty projects, building projects, sewing projects, or whatever else peaks my curiosity.

My goal is to inspire and be inspired to try new things, see different perspectives, be pushed out of my comfort zone, and to keep a positive outlook. It’s a lonely thankless job, but I’m thankful to be here.
