Jeremy Rodden

I am an overeducated stay-at-home dad to three wonderful sons. I have a BA in Religion and English Writing and an MA in Education. I worked briefly as a high school English teacher before we opted to keep me home when my second son was born in 2010. As a writer, I consider C.S. Lewis, Lewis Carroll, Douglas Adams, and Neil Gaiman my strongest influences. I enjoy multi-layered plots, clever wordplay, and bad jokes.

My 6 Year Old Evil Genie

Share:FacebookTwitteremailTumblrPinterestMore and more frequently, I am realizing that dealing with my six year old son is like dealing with an evil genie.  Either that, or his level of sarcastic smartassery has already made it to my level.  I am not entirely sure which one is scarier. An example–Parental Rule: “No feet on the new couch.” …
