J went back to work yesterday – and I stayed at home. Having left my job, and embraced parental leave, I realize I have a few things to learn.
The pace is different, for one. And by that it seems even busier than my job. I guess that’s because there are many, interconnected deadlines every day. Getting supper prepared and served at the same time as feeding A is a tricky act (it worked last night – barely), or grocery shopping with my 25-pound son. Then there is the myriad of tasks to do: they’ve been piling up since December, due to Xmas and illness.
To deal with this, we’ve turned again to our trusty iPhones and I particular a new App: HoneyDo. This one allows J and I to create a shared to-do list and to complete the items in real time. So far it is pretty cool.
More to come in the ongoing adventures of New Dad.
