Father & Artist
This is a topic I've been wanting to blog about for a little while now. As some of you may know, I became a father to a beautiful little girl last December. I am now a stay-at-home-dad since February. Since I've been home, I have been struggling with balancing my Art and my Baby. Everything has to be timed. I have to hope that my drive and inspiration is in tact when she goes for a nap. It is something I have slowly been mastering over time. I get most of my work done in the evenings once she goes to sleep. But by doing that, I also cut my sleep time short. So I'm down to an average of 5 hours of sleep, 7 on a good night. On top of all that, I'm trying to whip myself back in shape by eating well and exercising. But overall, I've never felt better. Having this little girl in my life changed my whole perspective on everything. Everyday starts with a smile from her and it's "Go Time". It seems that now I make the best of everyday. Unlike before, I would sit on the couch on my days off wasting away in front of my Video Games and movies. I never appreciated the free time that I had. And now that I'm busy as hell, it seems as if I'm getting everything done that I have been trying to get done for years. So I have to thank my little Girl and my Amazing Wife for this new gift. The gift of being a Father and an Artist. Thank You!
