I’m not a better parent (or dad, or person) than anyone else. I don’t claim to be special in any way, except for my one super power: navel gazing. I can sit around and pondering and overthink ANYTHING with aplomb, panache, and my own sense of style. Go ahead, challenge me to a navel gaze-off – I will kick your belly.

In order to use this power for good, I wanted to chronicle some of my many many mistakes I’ve made so far, in the hopes that some of my experiences can help my children lead slightly less traumatic lives. Each blog post is addressed to them directly (in case the casual reader is curious as to my choice in pronouns).
