When Kim’s in the office, it’s “Boy’s Day” for me and Leo. In the past, this has basically meant one big party – doing lots of fun stuff together, eating chocolate in the morning, and having a blast.
We still enjoy our time, but lately it’s become a biiiit more tedious.
Leo has now fully entered his testing boundaries stage, which is completely normal and at times completely exhausting.
In the morning, it was all I could do to wrestle a bit with him and then we had a 30 minute battle over yes-you-need-to-eat-that-for-lunch. The afternoon picked up as we headed out for fro-yo and the train museum.
He’s a good boy, and I think that deep down he wants to act like it, but there are times that kid is a STINKER! Then disciplinarian Pa hits the scene, and there is great wailing and woe.
We’ll get there. Eventually.
In the meantime, Kim and I joke about how being parents ages you, like those before and after photos of presidents.
Watch for the wrinkles.
