Keeping it close to the vest
As a writer, I struggled with the whole, “how much am I going to share” type of thing. Early on, I didn’t share any pictures of myself and never really referred to myself or Meghan by name.
I’m Travis by the way. My wife is Meghan. My kids are baby owl and buddy originally and Ads and Marmar for short now. We’re pretty tight-lipped with pictures of the kiddos. We have private pages that we use, but I haven’t posted any through my open social media channels. I guess it’s just one of those things that I like knowing are our own and they can share pictures of themselves when they’re old enough.
I love talking about Meghan and the kids. I hope if the kiddos choose to read these posts one day, they’ll know I meant well or at least know that I loved talking about them. It’s all I can hope for, because when it comes down to it, it makes me feel good to share some of the things they do. They make us so happy and when I write about it, I get to experience those moments again and it makes me happy again.
Maybe that's why I love being a writer. I love rereading my work during the process and see the ins and outs of my story as it comes along and whether or not it does the trick for me. I guess that's the great thing about our kids. They are the best story.
