Man in the Moon Vancouver and 2009 Resolutions Follow-Up

Submitted by on Sunday, 12 July 20092 Comments

Two things to cover in this Jam – kinda related, kinda not related at all.  The first one is Man In The Moon in Vancouver, and the second is a follow-up on my 2009 parenting and relationship resolutions.

Let’s start with Man in the Moon.

Man in the Moon is a program where dads of all types (i.e. foster, step, grand, etc.), shapes, and sizes, can bond with their little ones.  If you’ve ever gone to a program with your child and were surrounded by moms with their children, making you feel like the odd man out, then Man in the Moon is for you.

the-dad-jam-postIt is put on by the Vancouver Public Library, and if you haven’t heard of it before, you are hearing about it from me now.  It is a great program for dads to spend time with their kids and take part in fun activities that engage them in play, bonding, and song.  It is for dads and their kids only, so you can have a real tribal time.

The sessions for babies run for newborns to 18 month olds, and the toddler sessions are for children ages 12 to 36 months.  It is great quality, bonding time spent between dad and child, and a great way to meet other dads and their kids.  Not to mention, it is a great way to give your wife some time off, which I am sure she’ll appreciate.

The Man in the Moon program is also offered in English, Spanish and Cantonese!

Admission to the program is free, but you need to call your branch to register.  For more information, you can also call 604-331-3657 or 604-331-3675.  You can also go to this website and find all the Man in the Moon times and places there.

On a related (and not so related) note, I followed-up my 2009 resolutions with my buddy Tyler over at Building Camelot recently, as we are at the halfway point through the year.

I enjoyed reflecting on my resolutions and the progress I have made on them so far, and you will see that some of my resolutions have turned out to be pipe dreams, while others have proven easy for me to hold true to.

Read the full article on how I’ve been making out on keeping my resolutions over at Building Camelot – here.

You’ll see that one of my resolutions was to spend one-on-one time with the kids… hence the relationship to the Man in the Moon program.  So if you also resolved to spend more time with your little ones in 2009, it’s still not too late!  If you live in Vancouver, check out Man in the Moon!
