It all started when a friend and I were discussing her wish to create a pregnancy journal for new moms. I told her there are plenty of pregnancy journals for moms, but there aren't any for dads. We laughed and laughed at the idea of daddy dutifully writing in his pregnancy journal. The thought of some manly man receiving his pregnancy journal from his wife sent us into hysterics. What would he do with it? Maybe it would end up being used as his "honey do" journal instead of his pregnancy journal. Someday, many years in the future, his wife would find his empty journal in his nightstand and he'd get yelled at.

Being a software techie and marketing my own products, I came to the conclusion this wasn't such a bad idea if it could be packaged in a way that would make it interesting for men. What could be better than creating personal letters from daddy that he can create as a digital product on his computer? Men love anything on the computer, so I brainstormed further and searched for a way to create a journal just for men.

Most new fathers have managed to coast through the pregnancy with nothing much to do. After their new namesake arrives, they make a rush to the Internet or their local book store to locate information on fatherhood. Journey to Fatherhood, Journaling Software™ from Life's Little Journals, LLC fills this gap by providing a way for daddy-to-be to get involved during the pregnancy and bond with his new child by writing letters. These letters become a keepsake for the child they will cherish in later years. This early involvement in the pregnancy stimulates the new daddy to think about the issues of raising a child and how he will adapt.

Life's Little Journals, LLC Journaling Software™ provides interactive computer software programs, which turns an ordinary computer screen into a keepsake journal as a lifelong memory tool the family can always share together, complete with audio, photos and the ability to publish into a hardbound keepsake book.

Gail Metcalf, Publisher of Life's Little Journals Journaling Software™, an eclectic collection of easy to use electronic journals, says "a woman expecting a child essentially knows this is a time of personal growth and uses her pregnancy to work through parenting issues. Men don't have this emotional need; they basically problem solve as issues arise. Our Journaling Software™ brings up issues in the form of a phrase to be completed by the new daddy. This gives him a chance to think about the issue and record is thoughts."

"Now with this new easy to use software we have developed a series of journals for expectant fathers, motherhood, giving birthing, siblings, grandparent and even teen pregnancy, where writers can replace photos with their own, record audio messages right on the page and self publish their very own keepsake hardbound book for less than $20."

After childbirth, or at any stage of the life cycle, depending on the journal, this memory keepsake can be downloaded and printed into a hardbound journal. It's as simple as typing into any word processing document on the computer.

These software journals are available for immediate download or can be ordered in CD format (in the US only). The programs are installed and run on the buyer's computer, making them immediately available for use and not subject to viruses plaguing the sites providing free software journals and services. Buyers won't need to purchase high-priced software to protect them while using these journals as they do not access the Internet during use.

Journey to Fatherhood has been named one of the winners of the Holiday 2006 Mr. Dad Seal of Approval. Upon awarding this seal of approval, Mr. Dad said "this interactive journaling software is one of the best gifts Dad can gift his child. Starting with pregnancy, Dad can record how he felt during his partner's pregnancy, and create a book about his child's birth. Intuitive programming and insertable graphics lets even the most illiterate computer user feel like a pro. Recommended for all expectant and new fathers." Hailed by Time Magazine as "the superdad's superdad", Armin Brott has helped millions of men around the world become the fathers they want to be. His Mr. Dad Seal of Approval helps dads and moms choose products that bring dads and their kids closer together.
