Hello and welcome to Iowa Dad Life. My name is Joel and I have lived in Iowa my entire life. While people outside the state often confuse Iowa for Ohio or Idaho, I am happy to live in Cedar Falls, Iowa with my wife, Anna, and two kids, Jude and Adelaide.
After our son, Jude, was born I told my wife that I should start a blog about being a first-time dad. Surprise, surprise, I never created the blog because I was busy daddying and never had the time. Well, 3 years and one child later, I have finally made it happen.
While life isn’t showing any signs of slowing down, I think it is important to finally start this blog and share my experiences of fatherhood along the way. I am by no means a pro at parenting, much less life. I am doing my best and hope some of my experiences resonate with you. As my grandma used to say, take what works and throw the rest away.
Thanks for visiting Iowa Dad Life. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
