January Member of the Month
My wife and I have lived in Petaluma for a little over 3 years, we previously lived in Colorado. The PMC was a great way for us to make connections and especially for getting established in a new town while we started our Family. We have one son, Ever, who is almost 2 1/2. He’s a playful, thoughtful, outdoor-loving and abundantly energetic little guy that keeps us on our toes physically and mentally.
I was happy to be involved in the start of the PMC Dads group which is really just starting to have a firm foundation. I’m excited to see what that grows into and the amazing things that will come of it. It’s a great group of Dads that are easy going and great to hang out with. The Dads group has been an important part of my life as a new parent, and especially as a father to have a community of other guys to talk with, learn from, and have a great time with while we navigate the parental world.
My wife and I hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2012 which was 2000 miles of long days, and constant ups and downs. While it pales in comparison to the joys and blessings of having our son, it certainly prepared us for parenthood in a way we never would have imagined. Plans don’t go as planned, unknown things are always around the next corner, and it’s important to be prepared for any kind of weather! But having a strong community, like Petaluma and the PMC group makes all the difference in the world.
Looking forward to meeting more people in this community and further participating and growing the Dads Group - encourage Dads to join if they aren’t already part of the group!
