Author, Author!

How do you care for your kids alone?  How about two?  Four?!  That’s what happened on March 26th, 2011.  Dave Manoucheri lost his wife of 18 years on the day of his wedding anniversary.  Now a widower he sees life in the middle of his life with a massive paradigm shift of his family. This blog, based on a saying hanging on their wall with the family photos is meant to chronicle the life they never thought they would live as it unfolds. Life, they found, is an adventure and change can still be good.  It’s how he learns to parent all over again.  Their story begins.

Expect humor, sadness, tons of music, pictures, and real life as it unfolds.

  1. First, I am so sorry for your loss. You’re having to face one of the greatest fears of every young family–losing a member–hourly and daily. And you seem to be doing it as well as anyone could.
    I can’t figure out how to send this privately, so here it is: I have a husband much like you in your marriage: loyal, kind, centered, hardworking, devoted, dependable–but struggles with the more superficial things, like how to celebrate a wife’s birthday. And here’s what I hope you take away: In the scheme of things, it matters very little, even for us women with high, even critical, standards of our partners. I’m pleasantly surprised when he comes up with what I really want as a gift, or picks the right dinner spot, but when he doesn’t, I’m usually so grateful for who he is generally it just doesn’t hurt the relationship. Every marriage is different, and you know yours best, but most of us women who have snagged a great partner by some luck or magic are just grateful, and even a little surprised, no offense to men. She loved you, birthdays and all. In time, I hope that’s what you’ll be most aware of on her birthday.
