Today was my second full day as stay at home dad.  Abby has an ear infection, so we were not able to do our normal schedule but it worked out just fine. I think it is easiest when the kids get to get out a bit. They really do like each other.  I think being outside will make things easier as well. I love spending time with my kids, playing with them, listening to them. I think it is harder for men to do the stay at home thing because we are built differently, but I consider it an honor.  I want to make the most of the time, but also care for myself and not ignore them ever. It will be an interesting task and I will need to be creative. I am not sure how long it will be or how it will work long term. We are still discerning what is next for me and of course in the meantime need to have the kids at home. I do miss work a bit and am still healing, but was sure glad to not have to go to staff meeting! The best moment of the day was turning around in the car to see them both asleep holding each others hand. What a glorious thing.
