for the past two days, sharon has been at this amazing photography workshop that i'll tell you more about later, while i've been home hanging with the kidlets....which has been fun. not a knock to any other dads....but just to give my own opinion....i don't view hanging out with my kids by myself as 'babysitting'....i don't think you're really aloud to say that when they are your kids....right? it's not something that i dread or worry about or feel uncomfortable with. i actually kind of enjoy the order and the structure that comes with being with them all day, not to mention the interaction that i miss out on all the time. i always get a new appreciation and love for who they are...and a refreshing realization of the fantastic job of nurturing that sharon does each and every day.
sharon will be home late again tonight and then on to the last day of the workshop tomorrow...and just this afternoon (hence, i'm blogging on the weekend, which i rarely do) i just started feeling really lonely. like....where's my buddy? i've got the kids here....but i'm craving adult conversation. you know? and all of a sudden, i understood why sharon has that look in her eye when i get home from work everyday. you know that look? she's wanting to talk about something more then 'the jonas brothers' and 'the suite life of zack and cody'. she wants to do more then just give directions and play referie. she wants peer contact. and that's where i'm at. in the words of the great rob thomas, 'i don't want to be lonely no more' so, i guess to add to the stacks of great things that will come out of the weekend for sharon...i got something too....a little understanding.
thanks babe. i love you more then i could ever convey in a blog post.
less of me...
PS....monopoly with kids is hilarious!
