We’re counting down to the end of summer. In years past, I was counting down the days until the kids went back to school. When they were younger, they required a lot more hands-on attention. They couldn’t do anything without us, especially the younger one.
“Daddy, play with me!”
“Daddy, I’m hungry!”
“Daddy, I’m bored!”
Nowadays, it kind of feels like the opposite. Our boy is a lot more independent, and it’s a lot easier working from home since he can entertain himself. I’m probably going to miss taking them on lunch breaks and running errands. It’ll be a lot quieter around the house.
