This title proves prophetic today. I had forgotten just how much an infant forces you to slow down certain things.
Over the past 2 weeks I have had to slow down many times, with my writing and housework and yard work. I have watched more movies and tv shows in the last 2 weeks than I have in the past 6 months when I started this whole online venture.
I have been writing about unplugging the past few days and I think that he has a lot to do with this. Now, if you have read any of this blog in the past, you know that my family is very important to me. I love doing things with my kids and I really am excited to watch them grow and develop.
It is so much fun to see them grow and change through all of the ages. It is fun to see their tastes in music and movies change and mature as they grow. It is also fun to see what the new one will choose when he can control what to watch. My 4 year old is finally gtting into some of her own things and not just copying her older sister. My son has always kind of done his own thing, it will be interesting to see if my new son follows him or does something totally new.
I think it has been good for all of us to just slow down. It has been good for me to get off of the computer and just hold the baby for a couple of hours at a time. These are the times you can’t get back if you miss them. This is exactly why I am a dad.
Being a Stay At Home Dad allows me to see all of these milestones. These 4 kids I own make me want to work my butt off and be able to stay home with them and all of the things that they accomplish. I can’t recommend it highly enough.
Have a great weekend! We get to watch fireworks tomorrow!
