I Love You and Bye Bye (I Love You and Bye Bye)

Will (my 3-year-old son) has been very interested in talking on the phone recently. He'll often start running through a range of 3-year-old topics at lightspeed and then finish the conversation with, "I love you and bye bye," and then he'll repeat it for emphasis: "I love you and bye bye."


3-year-old Will in action

I'm not planning on leaving the blogosphere or anything like that, but I am going to take a break specifically on My Name Is Not Bob. As I've mentioned before, I have some secret and not-so-secret projects in the works, but I've also just had a lot of living to do this summer, including Cub Scouts Day Camp, vacations with my kids, and a poetry collection I've been assembling.

Today I've decided to quit trying to juggle everything at once. I'm going to put this ball down until some point in August--when I anticipate my schedule getting back to semi-normal. Since I haven't done a ton of blogging since the middle of May, I understand that not much will change here. However, it will give me peace of mind for the next month or so.

If you've submitted a guest post to me, don't worry. Those will go up, but they'll go up when I'm able to devote all my attention to promoting them via my social media accounts. I'd like to avoid doing a half-hearted stab at blogging here.

In the meantime, please check out my two "professional" blogs:
As I mentioned above, I'll be back here in August (and stronger than ever), but for now, I love you and bye bye.

I love you and bye bye.

Good for you, Robert. I, too, am finding it hard to juggle everything in these busy summer months. Trying to write more, and "platform" less. ;)

Happy, Happy "Hiatus." And as a wife and mom whose partner in parenting crime holds the same values, THANK YOU for continuing to make your family your first priority. It is a refreshing thing to see in today's busy world.

Sometimes something just have to be put aside. Family is the most important gift we have so enjoy that part of your life. The kids will grow up but they need us to guide and love them. Work and hobbies can be done later.
Read you later Bob.

Summer was made for childhood. Don't miss your chance to relive it through their eyes. See you in August. We may be over, but we are not done with you as yet.

I'm sorry to hear you won't be blogging here for a while, but I understand. Sometimes, there just aren't enough hours in a day, and something's gotta give somewhere. I hope you have an enjoyable month with your family and look forward to reading your posts when you return next month.
