My name is Aaron Gouveia and I’m a 35-year-old father and husband born and bred in Massachusetts. I have two beautiful sons named Will and Sam, a gorgeous wife named MJ, and the sweetest golden retriever that ever lived. I’m a smart-ass former newspaper reporter with a penchant for turning a phrase, who decided to go corporate and is now enjoying life as a content manager for a website.
My articles on parenting and family have been featured in TIME Magazine, The Huffington Post, Good Men Project, Parents Magazine, American Baby, and iVillage, just to name a few. I’ve also worked with brands such as Toyota, Dove Men+Care, Tide, Little Remedies, Enterprise Rent-a-Car, and more.
This blog is not just another “daddy blog.” Sure I write about my son, but these pages are a record of my life. I don’t just highlight the fun milestones like first steps, I also chronicle the “other stuff.” The fights, the torment and the doubt that inevitably come with being a husband and father. It’s not always puppy dogs and rainbows, but it is very real. And often there is beauty in the sadness, redemption in the struggle.
