Chat Me: Gaming with Scott

I was interviewed at Starbase Indy by the famous local podcast, Gaming with Scott!

Tune in and enjoy my thoughts on parenting styles, racism, vegetarianism, passion and honesty, why horns don’t belong on viking helmets, and getting exposure as a writer and new author.

Parenting. Sigh.

Parenthood is holding your sobbing children as you tell them their cat died, and having a big family cry pile on the couch, and being strong for them as you help them plan a memorial service.

Parenthood is listening to them crying themselves to sleep upstairs and not running up to comfort them because we’d all just get upset again.

Parenthood is knowing it’s better to tell them the truth up front even though it hurts, and letting them face this head on now because you know it will help them be better prepared for real life.

Parenthood sucks sometimes.

I hate puking

Home today with a pukey little one. After every retch, she cries. “I hate puking.”

Poor little thing. All I can do is rub her back.

Here I am, this giant powerful man, with money and brains… and all I can do is pat her back and assure her that she’ll feel better later.

Big sigh.
