Dear Charlie, I'm transitioning to quarterly updates now, rather than monthly. Primarily because I spend the majority of my time chasing you and preventing your demise. A LOT of general life stuff has happened in the past couple months. A lot. But as for you, here's what you've been getting into: You're a dancing king. … Continue reading 1 year, 3 month Pook – A Letter to Charlie
Dear Charlie, A year. A. Year. AN. EFFING. YEAR!?!?!?! How did this happen? (i.e. How did we all survive?) I'm feeling all the nostalgia right now, but I don't miss your newborn days.
