I am a Parent is a personal collection of anecdotes, observations, and hard truths.
Peeing on a stick is hard.
No one ever tells you this. I guess it’s supposed to be common knowledge. Just like how if you touch a hot stove you can burn your finger or that Lin-Manuel Miranda is a genius. Common knowledge.
What have you all been up to? Fighting the good fight? Making strides in putting yourself first? Just trying to make it through the day without stepping on a toy? Yeah. Me too.
Here’s what I’ve been up to:
Legion on FX – Holy crap. This show is amazing. I haven’t been this into a show in a really long time. It’s wonderfully cast, beautifully shot, and Aubrey Plaza scares the hell out of me.
Weekends are for
Scooter rides and walking the dog at the park
Braving Costco crowds
Catching up on cartoons
Strolling along lagoons
Getting Dole Whip and not sharing any with your kids
Seeing family at the beach
Letting the ocean wash over your feet
Stuffing your face with manapua, fried noodles, and banana lumpia
Smiling because your heart is so full
