Parenting: More Fun Than A Night Club With A Barrell O Monkeys
Charlie is almost two months old and man, am I sleepy.
He smiles now , it is not just gas, he looks at us grins and coos.
Now we are juggling two younger children and the needs of a ten year old boy who is trying to figure out algebra and have a good time.
It is easy for me sometimes to resort to fantsizing that I stopped after the oldest was born and imagine all the things that I could be doing in a couple with one part time kid. (I coulda' bin a sta) Oh well.
My wife and I went out on a date a week ago to see Rev. Billy C. Wirtz...now..ok yer saying. A date wow.... This is a big deal. We did not leave the 2 year old with a sitter until she was 2, the sitter was my mom. We left Chuckles with a sitter at the ripe old age of 6 weeks. The sitter in this case was not remotely related (not entirely true, we come from the same town and the same religion) Anyway DW(dear wife) commented, that it is a shame that we have been living in the SF Bay area for six years and have not gone out to many shows. We have been busy having kids, which is energy sapping and financially intensive.
We could have gone to all kinds of shows if we had stuck with the part-time parent model.
