Al Watts is a busy at-home father from west Omaha.
We’ve enjoyed his entertaining and engaging blogs — from “The wifely duty” which suggests that women should have sex with their husbands more to “At-home dad: Best job ever” where he boasts about getting paid in kisses and hugs.
Al knows how to spark conversations — sometimes gigantic conversations – about real-life issues. I’ve always admired his tenacity and willingness to tackle some really tough topics such as sex, abortion and fathers’ rights.
His devotion to other at-home fathers is remarkable. He’s helped plan the National At-Home Dads Convention for the last several years. The convention offers lots of in-depth research and practical advice from experts, along with tips and fellowship from fellow dads. Most importantly, it helps men connect with one another.
And now our main man Al Watts is leaving us.
Our loss is the National At-Home Dad Network’s gain.
He’ll focus much of his time updating the organization’s websites and building partnerships with corporations.
He’s also co-writing a book, titled “Dads Behaving Dadly: Chronicles of the Fatherhood Revolution.” He hopes to publish the book by Father’s Day.
Al has offered to occasionally contribute as a guest blogger.
In an email, he said:
“I have really appreciated the opportunity to write for momaha. It has given me an opportunity to reach for my dream to be a professional writer. It has also given me a platform for expressing my views on fatherhood, which is often ignored.”
Al Watts, we’ll continue to believe in you. We wish you the very best and can’t wait for a signed copy of your book.
Good luck, friend.
