I will be trying to get things updated here more often then once a year or or once a quarter or whatever I have been doing now. I have a new Posterous blog where I send pictures I take with my phone while I am on the move or when the new child (okay, not a human child, but a fur baby) does something cute or crazy.
What have you been up to? What are your plans for 2010? Who is having new babies these days? I feel like I have not been around here since …. wait I guess I haven’t. Catch me up!
I have been doing my own self study since becoming a stay at home dad. After more than a year and a half of this work I have drawn some conclusions, the main conclusion of which is that being a stay at home parent is hard work.
The grass is always greener until you have had a chance to munch on that greener grass for a while. Then other fences get built and you begin to peer over those fences to see a different shade of green. I suppose that is what makes life become less stagnant.
I sit here in front of my computer at 4:00 a.m. as I am not only a stay at home dad but I am also a business owner and run a full-time business from home. As you can see where this is headed, with parenting 24/7 and also worrying about business and being the entrepreneur, I am trying to live both worlds. At the end of this month, a life changing event takes place. The life changing event is called “summer vacation.” I’ll have all four of the kids at home to make my job a little bit harder on all fronts.
How am I going to handle this new challenge? I have decided to throw out all the child labor laws and put my kids to work. Genuine Girl will be handling all contracts and accounting issues since I can no longer help with her math homework and she can negotiate with the best. Genuine Boy will handle all operations as he seems to be able to run many different facets of his Nintendo DS and still watch cartoons at the same time. Genuine Toddler and Baby (not so much baby anymore) will be in charge of production. They can tell stories until they are blue in the face so they will be producing all blogging content.
Me? I think I’ll look over the fence and see what shade the grass is for my next adventure. I’m thinking of taking up being a pirate.
Sorry Blog for I have sinned it’s been far too long since I last posted. It was four years ago that I began my blog on my birthday March 1. Actually this year I was able to celebrate my real birthday which is February 29th! I will begin posting again here as I need to get back into updating what is happening in my life and the lives of my family. I know that if you are in my family you have mentioned that I need to start updating again as well. So I suppose I should get back into the ring and take another swing!
