Today I was Mr. Mom.

It was Wife’s first day back to work. I had the day off so I watched Beckett, our baby. Watching a baby is tough. You can’t get done what you think you would be able to get done. I didn’t take a shower until 2pm.

Even recounting a discernible sequence of events is challenging because they all flow together. I was cooing with him one moment, rinsing some dishes in the sink the next, cooing again, putting clothes in the dryer, addressing his crying, etc.

It gave me a new found respect for moms.
