I can't help but feel lucky. Lucky to have an amazing woman by my side, as we raise our two kids trying to give them everything they need. When I have moments of feeling like I'm failing, particularly in the field of earning money for my writing, Meghan is there. Not only does she support my writing career, she accepts me and encourages me, even at times when I feel like I'm letting our family down. It's not easy for me at times to get out of my own head, and having a day dedicated to me seems odd. I almost feel unworthy of having such a day, because so often I feel the burdens of my own expectations. I have self-published fictional works. I've written an assortment of online content. I'm constantly seeking the next creative writing path, whether it be a short story, poem, or comic book script. Despite success, or the trying feelings of fear and failure, this amazing woman sees me. She hears me. She believes in me. Through it all, her support grounds me. She keeps me balanced, even at times when it feels like I won't "make it" as a writer when it's all I want. Father's Day for me is recognizing the most amazing partner I could have ever imagined by my side. I'm a better person with her in my life, and most definitely a better father too. Despite the funks, she's there for me. Even on a day like today, a simple gesture, like being given peanut butter M&Ms, makes me appreciate what I have. #fathersday #writerslife #sundaythoughts #parentlife #dadlife #geekyparent #wineyparent #writer #peanutbutter #mandms #bestwifeever
Picking up my daughter from her last day of Kindergarten and I've just finished Hawkeye Vol. 1. Such a fun read with solid characters, and the interactions between Kate Bishop and Jessica Jones are phenomenal! I definitely want to see where Kate's story goes moving forward after a well structured plot ends perfectly with Kate's personality dominating in the best way possible. #hawkeye #katebishop #marvel #reading #comics #dadlife #parentlife #writerslife #comicbooks #instagram #comicbook #review #writer #writersofinstagram #parentsofinstagram #fridayfeeling #wineyparent #geekyparent
I just burned through The Woods this past week. Wow! What an amazing story from start to finish. These characters go through so much, beyond their own self doubt, and the creators do a magnificent job at making the reader feel every moment. Incredible. One of my all-time favorite stories. #thewoods #baypoint #alien #monkey #comicbooks #boomstudios #reading #comics #parentlife #geekyparent #wineyparent #instagram #comicbook #review
Here are some comics I've read the past few weeks, while I wait to pick up my daughter from school.

I don't always color with my kids, but when I do, I pick Batman (mostly). The Flash was from a while ago. #geekyparent #batman #theflash #dccomics #coloring #superheroes #parentlife #dadlife #weekendfun #parentsofinstagram #dadsofinstagram #wineyparent
I'm flying solo tonight since my better half is working an afterschool event. Happy Winey Parent Wednesday! Oh, that mess down there? Well, the kids are currently laughing at something, so clean up can wait until later...or tomorrow. #wineyparentwednesday #solo #datenight #parentlife #teacherlife #wednesdaymotivation #winelover #adulting #drinking #wine #wineglass #tmnt #geekyparent #wednesdaymood #parentsofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #happykids #parenting #happylife #cheers #wineyparent
I was able to finish this one today, while waiting to pick up the kiddo.

This morning's bedhead is quite spiky in the back. Perhaps it's excited to see @avengers today. #bedhead #geekyparent #avengers #endgame #fridayfeeling #happyfriday #morningmotivation #avengersendgame #movie #getyourpopcornready #wineyparent
As my daughter is learning to read, she picked up this comic this morning. It was great watching her concentrate to try and figure it out. #reading #comics #geekyparent #wineyparent #proudparents #boomstudios #comicbooks #monday #readingtime #happymonday #parentlife #dadlife
The X-Men have always been my favourite superheroes (sorry, Wonder Woman), and I love Wolverine just a smidge extra because he's Canadian. This OOAK Sweater is open for bids in the #Marvel themed auction in @geekchicfleet. Hope over a check out all the talent (just don't bid on the bracelet from @teamneville that I want!). . . . . . #minigeeks #xmen #wolverine #logan #superheroes #mutants #hescanadian #proudlycanadian #onlineauction #geekchic #geekgear #geekedout #sale #oneofakindkids #ottawa #handmade613 #handmadekidsclothes #floralheroes #giftforgeeks #geekylove #geekyparent #buycanadian
This morning's bedhead is brought to you by Star Wars, Darth Vader, and the Death Star. Also, I haven't had coffee yet, so that must mean the power of the dark side is being tapped. #bedhead #starwars #darthvader #deathstar #red #lightsaber #wednesday #tshirt #darkside #coffeeplease #wineyparent #geekyparent
Since starting a parenting blog (@wineyparent ) with my wife, I've dedicated my time waiting to pick up my daughter to reading. And, of course, being the giant geek that I am, that means comics. So, take a look at a what I've been reading over the past few weeks. Then, feel free to share what you think I should add to my to-read list. Also, don't mind the bedhead.
