Today was a very rare occurrence: I got to spend virtually the whole day with one child. I won’t get into the details, but the other 4 members of the family were all out doing their own thing today.
Evie & I had a lovely day. We found a great breakfast spot where she had chocolate chip pancakes. We went on a walk. We read books, played tennis, and find nothing in our quiet house. It’s such a pleasure and a relief to get to the point where you just enjoy hanging out w your kids because they are amazing people with unique personalities, just like a few years ago with abbey: https://knorthwestkniffins.wordpress.com/2018/03/09/a-first-abbey-and-me-go-to-hang-out-at-a-coffee-shop-and-read-a-book/
I can’t express adequately how necessary these days are to a Dad like me. They are like water in a desert.
