Story

This is Are We Still Cool?, our blog that started out as a funny look at whether we were still cool after having a baby. But after three and a half years — including a slightly illogical move to New York City, the birth of our second child, and living in one bedroom of an apartment with roommates — this blog now tells the story of our lives, including parenting, work, struggles, and dreams.

We are Cool Dad (Eric Corpus), Cool Mum (Laura Corpus), Cool Baby Boy (Noah Corpus), and Cool Newbie (Micah Corpus). We have the nicknames because we started the blog anonymously, but eventually revealed our identities. The names stuck.

To catch you up on the story, here is a selection of our nearly 600 posts. If you like what you see, please subscribe to us, follow us on Twitter, and like us on our Facebook page!

    It was truly a blessing for me, receiving the opportunity to work with Noah at VBS. Meeting ‘Cool Mom’ and seeing her love for her children, was heart warming. You both exceed the term ‘genuine’, as individuals and as parents. Nashville would love to have you visit, and possibly attend our VBS next summer. Just an idea, maybe it would be a great addition to your blog for Summer 2012!

      The kids had a blast! Thanks for coming up! Now if I could just get the ‘yes to vbs’ song out of my head…
