Part Time Stay at Home Dad

Today is a special day, well maybe not special. Today marks the beginnings of another one of the changes that Melissa going back to work has brought about. Today I work from home, so that I can watch the kids. Of course realistically there will be only so much I can do with a 3.5 and 1 year old running around wanting attention. To handle that fact I began working on some of the code I wanted to get done today last night after the kids went to bed.  OF course I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked, but I’m hopeful that I’ll find some time during the day or tomorrow evening.

To add to the fun of the day I’m also taking Jacob to his doctor to get his ears checked out. He’s currently in the middle of fighting off an ear infection and I want to make sure that nothing is wrong so I can take him swimming on Saturday, I don’t want him to miss another week. I’ve arrange for my mom to hang out with Violet so that I’m only taking Jacob.

Its strange how much I was looking forward to these days while Melissa was on maternity leave. I really like the days I get to spend with just me and the kids. I miss Melissa and family das are always great but once and a while a daddy and kids day is fun.
