Nikki went on a trip to teach swing dancing in Minnesota, so I thought I’d take over her blog for the weekend since I’m home watching the kids and taking care of the house.
I put my dance studio business work on hold for five days and am enjoying the company of my kids.
I’m also doing a test tech post because I’m writing this whole blog using Siri/dictation on my iPhone using the WordPress app. So basically, that means I speak what I want to write into my phone and then do little edits on things that the dictation software messes up.
For example, I’m at the pool right now taking my four-year-old girl Anjali to a swimming lesson, while holding my eight-month-old boy Arjuna in my arms. He is quite the wrestler, so sometimes I have to put him down to do my edits, while keeping one eye on him, since he is on suicide watch.
Yesterday, I had my first full day with the family. Nikki always suggests to our babysitters and to me when watching the kids, don’t stay home, go out into the world and do activities. So, following the advice, I met up with my sister-in-law and her three kids, and her mother-in-law, at the Irvine spectrum. I had a good time walking around looking like super dad.
In case I don’t have time to write more, since Anjali’s lesson is just about over, I wanted to say one interesting thing about the experience of being a family focused father. It’s amazing how my mindset changes when my sole responsibility in the whole world is to keep my kids happy and alive, learning and growing. Even though it’s so much work, it’s balanced out by so much joy.
Come home Mama, we all miss you.
