Anonymous asked: I love you. In a completely platonic way. In an innocent way that I want you to be happy and I want you to find peace. We have far too much in common and it's not all of the rainbow fluffy sunshine stuff. I've struggled with addiction and am still recovering. Life fucking sucks sometimes. My anxiety eats me alive and other days I feel on top of the world. I feel so fucking immature sometimes and then other days I feel like I'm far more mature than I want to be. Just remember you're a good person

No I am not where I belong,
So shine a light and guide me home.
These kids all came in and asked to lay their hands on me and pray, I let them and Matthew screamed “OMG Nate are you possessed” and one of the girls giggled and asked Jesus to fill me with love.

Am I allowed to reblog someone quoting me…. Too bad.

Are you reading growinguplast? It’s a FABULOUS Tumblr site full of real conversation and honest talk about parenting. I LOVE it and recommend you follow it.
(Related newbie Tumblr question: is there a #ff — “Follow Friday” — tag here like there is on Twitter?)
Look at that.
I work with Matthew the final 9 hours of my day and then we are going to the gym together. Cute boys with perf hair and brows, omg…. I’m the ugly friend at the gym.
Either way from 1p til 1030p be prepared for funny quotes, inside jokes, selfies, photos, and short videos.
Tomorrow is Punkdad Vlogs. I have about 3 questions… Which if it stays that way will just be 3 topics I expand on.
Got baby ears again, pink flowers!
As an adult, hell as a parent we should have personal accountability and hold ourselves to certain standards. I’m not talking about standards set by society or others opinions of us but things that make us feel like we are good people and parents.
I’m failing at the commitments I have made to myself and taking it one day at a time is just day by day chipping away at me. May 1st I go to a new psych and will enter treatment. Making these appointments and creating goals is something to be proud of, but self destructive behaviors and thoughts don’t wait for appointments.
Being a good father doesn’t mean I can’t be a better one. I’m trying.
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.
Thanks again for all of your support!
The Team at Growing up Last
