Daddy’s Day Off

Monday, January 3rd, 2011

As a parent, one gets used to the idea that if you’re not working, you’re taking care of your kids.  It is a very rare event to have more than a few minutes to oneself without some sort of activity taking place or task that needs to be accomplished.  Sure, you can get a babysitter now and then or take turns having a mom’s and dad’s night out, but, really, one’s life is, for the most part, put on hold when one has kids.  So when I found myself in the odd position of having a day off with no kids and nothing I desperately needed to do, I began pondering the many options I had to amuse myself for the day.

Naturally, it didn’t quite work out the way I’d planned it.
