Celebrate, Gripe & Get to Know Other Dads

February 21, 2013

Whether you’re a dad to a daughter or a son (or both), you’ll fall in love with the blog Life To Her Years, written by a dad about loving and raising his two daughters. Each post is a simple picture and caption, with a funny, insightful or thoughtful tip for raising your daughter. But really, most of the tips apply to any gender.

From the dad blog

We’d love to hear from you in the comments section below, too: what’s most important to you in raising your daughter or son? 

And while we’re talking daddyhood, we know that you need a community, too.

That’s why Blooma offers a monthly “Dad’s Hour” — led by a local dad. Dad’s Hours are offered twice monthly — once at Blooma Minneapolis and once at our St. Paul location. The next Dad’s Hour sessions are:

  • Saturday, March 2, 2-3 p.m. (Mpls) | SIGN UP
  • Saturday, March 16, 5-6 p.m. (St. Paul) | SIGN UP

Sign up online (and bring a buddy!). Whether you want to gripe about the sleep you’re not getting, find out if others also have anxieties about becoming a dad, or are just looking to get to know other dads, we’d love to see you on March 2 or 16!

It’s just a $10 drop-in fee, or use your partner’s Blooma Pass. Whether you’re a Dad-To-Be or already have 1, 2, 3, or more kids at home, Dad’s Hour is an hour for all types of dads to relate to other dads.

New Class for Dads/Partners + Dads-to-Be – This Thursday!

August 13, 2012

With so much focus on mom as her pregnancy progresses, it’s easy for dads’ or partners’ questions to go unanswered. Blooma knows that it’s not just the mama who needs support.

Join postpartum doula Margaret McKinley Owens and her husband, Charlie Owens, as they guide “Pappy Hour,” this Thursday (8/16), 7:30-9 p.m.

This new class just for dads and partners — from pregnancy through the first year of baby’s life — answers many of the questions you never thought to ask, for just $15.

Here’s what one mom wrote us after the last Pappy Hour:

I think he was nervous because he had never left the house alone with Henry (who is now 3 months old).  After class he said he felt like he gained some confidence (it helped seeing other dads with their babies), learned about resources that provide ideas for interaction with baby and “dad stuff…”  The best part was that he said, “[He] would DEFINITELY go to another Pappy Hour!”
