I'm Sponge & Gong Zhu's's dada and my wife's husband. We all live in Wisconsin, where we were raised and have spent most of our lives. I am in my early 40's and a teacher by trade, but I quit teaching by choice to be a stay-at-home dad. (Now I am teaching again part-time.) Sponge (9) is our biological son, and Gong Zhu (7) joined our family in 2007, when we adopted her in her home city, Guangzhou, China.
For this blog, their names have been changed to protect the innocent … and them as well. 'Sponge' is bright & has a good memory (especially for SpongeBob & "Phineas & Ferb" quotes.) 'Gong Zhu' (princess in Mandarin) is bright (as you must be to someday rule the kingdom) and loves all things "princess".
