I feel so disconnected from blogging. It is almost like I am coming back to an old room where there are cobwebs all over and I need to not only clean but figure out what is new. The lack of post has not been because of the lack of topics to write about, it has been a mixture of time and also that venting to the internet feels more life facebook prayers than actual writing.
Enter having a baby.
I am amazed at how much this has changed me already. I thought I would be a lot more cynical afterwards towards parents and rather than joining their club I would be like, screw you I feel no different and I am still a parent.
Could not be further from the truth. This is a weird exclusive club. You can describe it, you can even dabble on it by babysitting… but the level of constant worry and fear that comes with being a parent is really amazing. It does not leave, you just learn to live with it.
I love the fact that my best friend has been a parent for years and I can talk to him about all my crazy thoughts without being judged. So the next logical step is to put those thoughts out in the internet.
I am going to try to document parenting from my point of view. I already see value on my perspective growing up in a different culture and seeing the kid obsessed culture here in the USA.
For now I am starting slow, dusting off my blog and cleaning up. Joining a very cool community for Dad’s that blog and starting to soak up information as quickly as possible.
