Click To Be Amazed

A buoyant little blog documenting my voyage on the sea of life. A spot to rest my thoughts on being a father, living life, and loving people all while enjoying a little food and drink along the way.

It’s About Time.

I am always late. ALWAYS. I was born late. I was kicked out of high school in 11th grade for never showing up on time. I’ve been late to work nearly everyday of my adult life. And yet, it is somehow my responsibility to get myself & my kiddo (age three and a half for those just joining us) presentable, packed, and out the door each morning. Many days, it’s an exercise in futility, but I’ve found a few tricks that keep us in line, and even a couple that actually follow an established parenting method that someone other than me invented. Shocking, I know. Read on for some hopefully helpful tips.

Routine and lunch planning are on my list too!

Yup. That’s one sweet ride.

Everyone knows a teacher’s day is never really over, but photographer Aliza Eliazarov wanted to capture that moment as soon as the last bell has rung. 

In “See Me After School,” Aliza uses the power of portraiture to show the immense value of the educators around us.

I like this, and would like it even more if there was a way to capture teachers across the world.  Great idea.

Truesday. Patience… I don’t gots it

I wish I had the patience to learn patience. You know? Having a little person, work, or day to day things test every button, even if it rarely happens, makes me toss emotion and understanding out the window. I want to just flip on Auto pilot.

Change is in the air, dear readers. And we don’t just mean spring—we mean big things for Growing up Last too!
Within the next few days, we hope to introduce you to the new team members that we will be adding to our panel of parents. We are excited to be growing in number, diversity, and viewpoints in an effort to bring you better content, more features, and to (hopefully) be able to better serve the parenting community at large.
Also, thanks in part to our readers and our humble beginnings at Tumblr, we have been invited to join a new blog Spotlight in the Parenting category at Tumblr. We are VERY excited to have been noticed and will soon be adding our blog into that mix.
As you can imagine, it’s a very hectic and exciting time for us all and, in the spirit of trying to keep it all organized, we’ll be talking a bit this week about how to balance priorities, how to keep things organized, and how you manage your time when you have multiple responsibilities pulling on you. Any tips, tricks, life hacks, resources, photos, or stories can be shared via submission or by tagging us #growinguplast.
