We Are All Bricking It

Today I took the kids to the park. The park is about 5 blocks away, and as usual I put the 10 month old in the carrier, the two year old went in the front of the tank (double stroller), and the just turned 4 year old walked. I clunked the stroller down the 10 steps outside our building and put the baby in the back seat of the stroller. He weighs 24 lbs., I save my back for the moments when he’s fussy. We strolled over to the park and started over in the grassy bandstand area, where the girls drew pictures with chalk and I played with the baby. I decided to branch out a little and try my luck in the playground, much to the kids’ delight. With the stern command of “you have to choose either the slide or the swings and stay together” we walked over there.

It’s good to talk…

I think that most parents would agree that they would love to be their children’s heroes but the truth is that one way or another we will fuck our kids up. Whether it’s via school choices, activities, opinions, overcompensating, under-compensating, depriving them of the latest piece of tech etc.  There is always going to be…

This aint dope.

Have you ever reached a point in your life where you realise that the vast majority of your actions from your youth were from the effect of something?  Like a drug?  See, that’s where I’m at right now. I feel robbed, angry, hurt and broken.  The tears, they can’t stop coming and the guilt, the…
