By Matt Logelin. Without the love of my life,I was now facing a lifetime as a single father to the daughter we were so excited to raise together.
Really, I do keep an eye on my kids. My son is just a spider monkey. #PlacesIFindLiam
Talking about sex with your kids is difficult.
I realized that I was probably doing just fine, so long as I was doing my best to be what my kids needed in that moment.
It all came on so fast. One minute they’re content watching parent-picked shows like Thomas the Train and Dora the Explorer on an actual television set, and now they are self-selecting videos and hearing the ‘F’ word all day on their own personal screens.
Years from now we will reminisce about this moment- the kite, the string, the wind.
How can I explain to them what has truly happened to me-that I have lost the ability imagine, to dream beyond the everyday?
When my daughter, Clover, was born I felt that part of my new responsibility was to imbue in her a deep and personal connection to the natural world.
I have to say that even though Ellie’s haircut was long overdue, I was still a little taken aback when my wife told me that this time I would be the one to accompany her to the salon.
