A Note of Thanks

by Chris Loprete

Hey everybody. I haven’t been able to hang out in the Daddy’s Den for awhile and I apologize. I guess it’s a good example of life getting in the way. Isn’t it amazing how quickly the days go by when you’ve got a full time job, a family, and a “Honey Do” list the size of your arm?

Well I’m going to try to do better from now on to post a little something here each month. Even if it’s a quick little blog. But come on. Let’s be real, folks. I’ve never written a short little anything in my life.

I really want to thank all of the Daddy’s Den guest bloggers who have been hanging out in here for the past few months. I especially want to give a big Daddy’s Den thank you belch (It’s our Den! We can be as gross as we want) to Nathan Bright. If you haven’t been reading his stuff, take some time to go back and read his many blogs from this year. He’s infinitely more talented than I am. Then buy his book “Maddi Patti and her Stay At Home Daddy”.

I also want to encourage other dads to feel free to submit blogs about their experiences as a father whether it’s good, bad, funny or tragic. It’s always nice when Dads can feel like they’re not alone. Especially since our wives don’t let us talk to each other anymore. Relax, ladies. I’m kidding.

Chris is an actor/writer living in Los Angeles. He’s performed in movies, TV and on stage with the Groundlings Improvisation troupe, and the award winning Circle X Theatre Company. He recently performed his self penned critically acclaimed one man show “You’re From Philly, Charlie Brown” in several cities across the US. Chris currently works as an Associate Writer/Producer for ABC On-Air Promos for Reality and Comedy. He lives north of Los Angeles, in Santa Clarita, with his wife and two children.


About A Wishful Thought

I am a military wife, mother, business owner, professional writer, blogger and legislative advocate. I am an entrepreneur. At Villanova University I studied Operations Management specializing in Program and Project Management. I worked at various oil refineries honing my skills and ultimately opened my own consulting firm. I consulted on Environmental Restoration and defense projects including software development, satellite development and programming, phased array radars, helicopter and tank development, etc. I decided to take new direction in life when I became pregnant in 2000. I founded my own corporation, Wish Enterprises, Inc., to fulfill my own wish of being able to stay home with my son while contributing to the family income. With my husband’s full support, I developed and founded The Wish Place. I now also own Buy By Mom to continue to my mission of assisting parents who want to be successful in their businesses. I am the Director of Communications for Our Milk Money, the Colorado State Leader for the National Association for Moms in Business and the Colorado State Coordinator for Smart Girl Politics. I am a professional writer and blogger. I am the Colorado Springs Stay-at-Home Moms Examiner for Examiner.com. I write articles for work at home parents on my blog associated with The Wish Place. I review products produced by moms and dads and feature businesses run by moms and dads on my Buy By Mom blog. I write for various online publications and am also a political writer. My specialty is connecting people with great home business opportunities and providing unmatched one-on-one mentorship to those starting a home business. My passion, purpose and goal is to help parents work from home so they can be home with their children. To that end, I am a Legislative Advocate at the National and State levels to influence policy so that it is favorable to those in business.
