About Okayest Dad

this be us. be nice.

This is where we do awkward introductions, right? Good. Those are my favorite.

Hi, my name is Jay, the Okayest Dad. The woman to my right (your left) is a stranger who wanted to throw gang signs in a picture. I made her aware that I was a rule-follower but she was insistent. Her name is Mallory, the Okayest Wife and Mom, and none of that other stuff is true. Except that she’s insistent. And likes to throw gang signs sometimes. She is also the mother of our son, Okayest Baby. He is a baby which is also simultaneously, okay.

I started this blog because everybody starts a blog. And because I like to write. Okayest Wife seems to think that I’ll be able to chronicle our adventures into parenthood with equal parts comedy and awesomesauce that they deserve. I agree with her.

As a team we are pretty awesome at everything. And humble. If we’re just talking about me, I’m pretty okay at everything from vidya games to grocery shopping and now Dad stuff. Okayest Wife and I also co-host the insanely, wild, over-exaggeratedly popular Oh By The Ways Podcast.

The rest of the adventure begins here and we look forward to sharing it with you. Trust me when I say: no holds barred, always unscripted and completely undignified is how we do business here…Welcome to The Okayest Dad and Family.
