Dad Duty — Day 3Posted: August 27, 2008
Honestly, when I first set out on this blogging adventure, the last thing I wanted to do was fall into a category, specifically, that of a daddy blogger.
I’m not trying to do that. Honest. I’m trying to blog about what is going on. And, well, this week, guess what’s going on? Yup. Kids. Kids. And more kids.
Thursday marks the start of day care, which means I’m back to work and settling into the routine of daily drop off for the kids. This is the first year without in-laws watching them, but they are going to a very familiar place where we have 100 percent trust — so there’s nothing to worry about there.
But, as you know, they’ve been my responsibility this week during the day. And, well, my motto was adventure. I can’t sit home. Have to be on the go. And today, we stayed close to home at a nearby park.
Here’s a look:
This picture had such potential. I took eight. This is the best one. And, of course, as I look at it now I’m like, yeah, I’ve got to learn how to do Erin’s hair.
“Daddy, it’s not a motorcycle, it’s just a regular number eight bike.”
“Daddy, daddy, Erin’s driving the fire truck! Daddy, daddy. She’s driving it.” And, um, again with the hair.
One of my favorite moments of the day.
The park has a lake. We circled it. Erin in her stroller. Aidan on his big wheel.
And that’s it. It wasn’t an easy three days. I’m not sure I could be the stay at home dad, but it was a lot of fun. And I thank you for sharing in it with me.
Now, let the madness begin.
