Introducing the chronicles as a weekly platform

I think my first post for The Penis Chronicles was simply called Raising Boys: The Penis Chronicles I posted it in 2016. In 2017 I participated in the A – Z challenge and all my posts were Raising Boys: The Penis Chronicles. Letter A can be found here: Raising Boys: The Penis Chronicles presents the Letter A for Anatomy. Somewhere during that time I wrote a piece originally titled “It’s called a Vagina” and it was published by Parents Canada under the title “Lady Parts.”

Parents CanadaAs my idea to do more with The Penis Chronicles was forming in my head I started sharing posts that started with the words “The Penis Chronicles presents” or I used “Raising Boys: The Penis Chronicles” as part of the title. Some of those posts can be read by clicking on the links below and others can be found by searching around on my site.

So what are The Penis Chronicles?

The Penis Chronicles are snippets from my experience raising boys. My boys provide a good chunk of inspiration for my writing as well providing a lot of humour in my life so I write about them often. What I hope to accomplish with The Penis Chronicles is the creation of a platform where parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles or any form of childcare provider…will share stories, advice and etcetera. I want to hear your childcare adventures! And please, I know the title says “penis chronicles”, but stories about raising girls are very much welcome. Please post and share your link in the comments section below.

The Penis Chronicles will be posted weekly on Wednesdays. I hope you will get a chance to check it out, share the link on your social media, laugh, and comment as well as share your own adventures.
