The Life of a Single Dad
No, Tricia and I are fine. It's just that she has been out of town a lot lately for work and I am living the lifestyle, thankfully not with the usual reasons, of a single dad. It's funny though, when she's gone I think I am a better parent. I wake up early because I want to, and make breakfast for the two of us, or even better, we go to breakfast. Then we go to the movies (saw Robots- very funny) or storytime at the bookstore, or a single parent therapy session. Wait. Haven't done that last one. Basically, we bond. It's beautiful. I find myself wanting to call in sick to work just to spend more time with him. Hell, I find myself wanting to quit my job to spend more time with him. That may not sound like a good idea, but man, I can't stand my job, and I sure love my son. That being said, I can't afford to walk away at this point- not with something else available. What I really need is a job where I can work at home. Anyone out there hiring?
