Break down your daily routine for us: when do you wake up? When do you go to sleep?
MICK: I wake up every day around 7:30 am. I usually wake up with a child on my arm, even though he originally goes to sleep in his bed. Somehow, when I wake up, he's on my left shoulder and I wake up with a cat on my right shoulder. Shout out to my cat Hov. He's like 17.
We wake up, make waffles, watch ten minutes of a cartoon and take our vitamins. We live on the block where Biggie grew up, so every day that we walk to preschool, we pass Biggie's house. It's an amazing moment for me culturally because I get to raise a kid in a neighborhood where an icon of mine lived.
We invented a thing called the foot pound. It's only for father and son sneakerheads and it's a handshake-like moment where we tap our sneakers together. It's really cute. So we do the foot-pound, he goes to school, I go get coffee, I come back home. I sit at my desk in the morning, do an email triage and figure out what needs to be handled for that day. I usually schedule a lunch meeting. I come back home in the afternoon, get him from preschool, and we'll go have some lunch. Then, usually, we'll go run some errands together and go home. If I have to go to a dinner party, sometimes I even bring him. And then the next day, we just repeat.
