I wanted to spend the afternoon at the library but they were booked.
I get a kick of how literal she is sometimes. Literal? Literal and literary.
At the risk of turning this into a daddy blog, I will say that as I try to figure out my actual role in the multi-year scenario that is being a dad to a freshly minted pre-teen, I am finding it is less about the “simple rules for my daughter” and more about how I adjust my own life to set an example. The kid has eyes. So many eyes. Everything I do is being watched and questioned and reflected back at me.
So as much as she’s a literal kid, she is also a literary one I guess. But largely because I am. Well.. literary. Not a kid. You know what I meant, right? I hope.
I’ve been feeling a bit prolific lately so you’re getting some bonus #comics as i work out some ideas… and some #creativeanxiety about where i’m taking these #toons as the kid grows up and starts aching for #independence …and this thing called #fatherhood and #parenting enter the #teenagergirl phase… rife with #stories and #adventures I’m certain, but territory I’ve not intersected with for a few decades!
