Within twenty-four hours of becoming a dad, my brain was ready to explode from all the new, funny, and frustrating things that were going on in my life. Because parenthood goes by so fast, I started turning these memories into parenting cartoons (Instagram) and letters (blog) that I will one day give to my son when he is old enough to appreciate it...maybe thirty years later when he has his own kids?!

We've been having a lot of fun sharing the sympathies, struggles, and laughs from parenthood with others along the way, but I've also struggled with the moral dilemma of "sharenting" - sharing photos/experiences of my child on social media without his consent. I've finally come to terms with it, and have also decided that if I ever make any money from this project, we will donate all our proceeds to a charity (suggestions welcomed!) that will give other families the opportunity to experience joy and happiness as we have.

Haha I remember the Barbie my uncle gave me when I was young. I was not able to play with it because my grandma put it up as a display.. Now I can't do the same with my daughter, if she wants to play with a toy, I allow her. But it's always a burden, especially when it comes to Lego pieces.

Sometimes, we all just end up hanging out in a 100sqft bathroom. It doesn't smell great.

I'm still shocked and sad about the shooting in Vegas. It has just been one terrible event after another this year. When I wrap my arms around Baobao now I find myself thinking I’m trying to protect him as much as I am just hugging him...and to me, that shift in thought is a sad reflection of our times.

I'm still shocked and sad about the shooting in Vegas. It has just been one terrible event after another this year. When I wrap my arms around Baobao now I find myself thinking I’m trying to protect him as much as I am just hugging him...and to me, that shift in thought is a sad reflection of our times. Our thoughts continue to go out to anyone and everyone that has been affected by all these tragic events.

True, I watched Bad Moms and agreed that each and every Mom is not perfect, and also Dads. We're only human, sometimes we do things or say things that hurt our kids. But what matters is that we try to make up with all our shortcomings. In these times, we come to realize that the life we have right now can easily be taken away by tragic events and so we have to make every day count.
