Jump in the Tubalub!

My name is Kip Durney and I'm looking forward to sharing with you some thoughts about parenting and specifically about the forgotten DADs. As a father of three, including identical twin girls, I recognized early on that I was not given the same level of stature as a father as my wife did as a mother - by family, friends, strangers, and brands. That recognition and increasing frustration led to the birth of Tubalub which I am now bringing to boston.com.

Why Tubalub? If you've got kids, you know how difficult it can be to get them into the oh-so-dreaded tub. At the very mention of "bath time," the kicking and screaming would commence making the entire process overwhelmingly frustrating and painful for both me and my wife. So, in an act of desperation one day, I enticed them with "let's jump in the Tubalub!" to which they sprung to their feet and into the now oh-so-playful indoor pool!

Success!

I'm very happy to be here and hope you'll join me next week as we begin a new adventure together. Hang on... it should be quite the ride.
