Most of us leave Post-In notes around for ourselves or for our partner in child rearing. As fulfilling as parenthood is, it sure can be devastating on ones wits and memory. But this post is about someone who went beyond written reminders plastered all over the house. Somewhere heartwarming, hilarious and occasionally off-color.
Chris Illuminati (amessagewithabottle.com) left his job in 2010 to become a stay-at-home dad for his newborn son. As a writer, he had a routine of leaving sticky notes around his office as reminders. This habit quickly translated to looking after his son, and soon he was leaving humorous notes highlighting his thoughts as a new parent.
I think you’ll find that a lot of these, if not ALL, are pretty relatable and sum up the trials of parenthood, alongside his wife “Permanent Roommate.”
