it's fucking hard


sometimes but you've just got to do it. you can't quit like you did with every other thing you didn't like. at times you want to scream or drink the world. other times you're just plain old-fashioned lonely. take time to write. take time off from everything when you can. take time out for a beer, just the two of you, and remember that you are still free. and so are the one's you love. your wings may at times feel clipped or caged but that's just because you haven't spread them in awhile. you've been too busy admiring other angels.

I am a 36 year old anarchist and new stay at home father of a one month old. I found this post so insightful. There is nothing that anyone can tell you to prepare you for how difficult this is. I think you perfectly captured the concept that being a caregiver for a child can feel very imprisoning while in reality it is a form of liberation. I love the blog and have linked it on mine at thetinyrevolution.com.
