Content that I enjoyed this week
I felt like I was looking at my future when I read this one.
You Have To Be The Grown Up
An excellent piece that captures a lot of my life these days. Getting frustrated with kids who ignore me and then losing my cool in the irritation or finding ways to step away and all the while hoping to teach my kids how to behave as a grown up some day.
“Maybe instead of messages of the overprotective dad, we need more messages about respectful young men and independent young women.
After all, isn’t that what we expect our children to be? Isn’t that what they already are?”
Yes to all of this.
Lots of feels in these illustrations.
The challenge of making it up as you go as a new parent and just trying to survive.
While I don’t know that there are many people other than me who would refer to me as fat and I don’t run, I can I can relate to Aaron Gouveia’s defiance and determination in this piece. It is a constant struggle to get to a place with our bodies where we feel healthy and comfortable. Hats off to Aaron and everyone else who makes the effort to be healthy for themselves and their kids.
