As well as being a writer, I'm a dad. In fact, I'm a dad first, then a writer. My boys are first and foremost in my mind every minute of every day, and it is because of them that I most want to write. A job like this, where I can work around their schedules, is the greatest chance I can have to make a life that I would have wanted growing up. A parent at my beck & call any time of day? That's the best!
Right now, my eldest boy is gearing up for pre-school. On one hand, my heart is breaking because my little boy is already heading off to school, albeit for two-and-a-half hours two days a week. On the other, he's going to love it so much because he's the coolest kid in town (not even biased a little bit) and can't wait to meet all the other kids. It's a good thing, but smelly old dad might shed a few when he drops the little man off.
My youngest is currently addicted to blueberries. I swear to God he threw down a half-pound of blueberries BEFORE dinner. I'm impressed more than anything.
Let's talk parenthood. Dads? Soon-to-be dads? Mums? Anyone, really. Books and kids, that's what this is all about here at Mahervolous Books.
Peace y'all, and talk to you soon.
