40 Weeks to Fatherhood
Team, I have been posting my rambling off-and-on in this dump for close to 10 years.
In fact, July 2014 will mark the official anniversary. Although that date is a ways off, it still gives me a bit of pause to think that my kid will nearly be a one-year-old when this blog officially hits 10.
That is a lot of writing and self loathing that, honestly, no one should be forced to read — especially children.
So when I thought about what my kid would find when he/she finally understands that Dad has been blogging his life for the past decade, I was a bit... well, terrified.
Terrified that when he/she wants to read about what I was going through while The Librarian was pregnant, he/she will also find posts about wild road trips across the Kansas prairie to attend Hunter S. Thompson's funeral... you know, role model material (seriously, why am I not writing a book?).
So, I decided to open up shop on another space: 40 Weeks to Fatherhood.
Letters and missives to my soon-to-be kid with only a fraction of the self loathing you would get from a typical WW post.
Oh, but don't worry, there is still a ton a swearing. I would never give that up.
