You might have noticed that Iâ€™ve been talking more concretely about my kids lately. This has been a bit of a hard decision. Should I write about them at all? Is it a violation of my familyâ€™s privacy? What about using their names? For a while now, Iâ€™ve wanted to tell you more about them. I know that I could invent aliases, but it doesnâ€™t feel natural to me to do that. So Iâ€™ve been using their names.
After my last post, I received a lot of comments from readers who were clearly confused about who Gabe is. I think I need to back up and tell you about my family.
Geoff and I have been married for almost 13 years. Our daughter, Anna, is seven. Our older son, Gabe, is five, and Nate, our baby, is almost two. They are funny, smart, great kids. Iâ€™m going to tell you more about them in future posts. Readers, I am trusting you. Please help me protect my family while I write my stories.
