Serge Bielanko spent nearly 15 years living in a van and cheap motel rooms as a guitarist/songwriter in a rock-n-roll band called Marah, before turning to marriage, parenthood, and writing. For the past several years, he has written about the humorous side of being a dad and a husband on his personal blog, Thunder Pie. In addition to writing daily for Babble Dad and Babble Voices (He Said/She Said), his writing has appeared in places like Esquire magazine and The Huffington Post. Nowadays, this 41-year-old dude spends way too much time working on his first book in his garage in central Pennsylvania, where he chases trout, drinks beer, and lives with his wife, the writer, Monica Bielanko, and their two kids, Violet and Henry.
A day in the life.
Looking through a slew of photos from the last eight years, it almost seems unreal, how much my wife and I have been through. Monica came up with this idea of a little photo essay idea of some pics of each of us along with some random unknown facts, and I’m glad she did. It’s been so cool, looking back through a million old photos, remembering times and places I’d almost forgotten; seeing her face back through the better part of a last decade..from way before we had our kids, from way before so much had happened.
If nothing else, it’s just good to remind ourselves sometimes that we are still the people we always were.
We are still the people we fell in love with…way back when.

The Rah-Rah Kid
When she was in middle school, my future wife was a cheerleader for a while. That is also around the time she was bit by a horse she stopped to pet while she she was walking to school one morning. She still has the scar.
