What’s in a birth class?
Mar 29 • 8 min
The longer I live, the more it seems, that details surrounding major life events are private and not to be discussed too openly. It could also have to do with how comfortable people are at digging a little deeper and questioning things. For example buying…
A moment of science
Mar 27 • 8 min
I like to understand the etymology of words, particularly in Arabic because it can be poetic at times. For instance, the Arabic word for human being is Insaan. From what I could find, it could have two roots, one is to forget and the other is to relate,…
What is a good father?
Mar 22 • 3 min
I’d previously shared that my dad met his father at the tender age of 16. I might dive deeper into his story in a future podcast, but suffice to say, his idea of what a father’s responsibilities are, did not fully align with my needs. Keep in mind, that,…
Why does this matter?
Mar 22 • 3 min
Outside of this whole future dad thing being what my friend described as the only time you’ll have “stress filled fun”, one of the reasons I believe I needed to undergo this self reflective process was synthesized by a pair of voices I’ve recently enjoyed…
Do you wanna?
Mar 22 • 3 min
Because so much of my partner’s life energy and routines were bump centered, an inherently physically and emotionally taxing process. I initially wasn’t as useful, or supportive as I could have been. We didn’t know how to communicate about our new need to…

Can we do this?
Mar 10 • 3 min
I recall a story my dad told me about the first time he met his father. He was playing football, soccer, on a dirt lot, when a man who seemed familiar walked towards him. He squints at this man through lashes made heavy by salty sweat, and without the…
What mask to wear?
Mar 10 • 4 min
I remember taking my phone off airplane mode and my phone buzzing a lot more than usual, it had a bunch of missed whatsapp calls and messages from my siblings, they’re much younger, so if it’s not on snapchat, it had to be important. I was worried,…
Future dad, how do you feel?
Mar 7 • 3 min
Laying the ground work for what this is all going to be about. A set of short musings and mostly reflections on my struggles with being a future dad who wants to become a present dad. I don’t know a lot of guys who want to talk about this in public, so…
Is this happening?
Mar 7 • 4 min
I’m not sure I fully realized that this child was coming in to the world for most of the pregnancy. There were no changes in habits, morning sickness, or cravings in my body to make it “real”. I had to feel ready, in the beginning, for this to end as…
