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.
