Zaizal Reed (almost 4), Atlas Grey (2) and Nixon Strummer (newborn)
Parenting has absolutely made me a better version of myself. I was knee deep in art school before I stumbled upon this whole new journey. And I can honestly say that even though my third son just arrived, everyday is a learning experience. I may have acquired a decent set of mom skills already but I’m still always figuring something out/improving myself to set a good example.
Before having my first son I was a fine arts student and did construction jobs to make money (no expert! But I did it!). I used to ride my bike/skateboard everywhere and firmly believed that I would never need a license (I have one now). Some people think that I’m funny/interesting? (I like those people!) I just think that I’ve been lucky enough to meet some really interesting and inspiring people along the way that helped shape me into what I am now. My heroes are some mix between Patti Smith, Henry Rollins, Lou Reed and Marina Abramović. Their attitudes and views on life have been an inspiration in my own. I am happiest when outside with my little men, hiking and exploring.
My oldest, Zai, has the best imagination. He’s always concocting some type of plan and puts his whole heart into it! He loves the Beatles and has us sing him Yellow Submarine every night. Atlas is hilarious! He has a bubbly personality and is always singing. His current favorites are The Ramones and Neutral Milk Hotel's cover of I Love How Your Eyes Close. Nixon is only a week old so we are still learning about that guy but we are so in love with him and excited to see his little personality develop!
