A few months ago I started this blog to discuss issues of pertinent in my life, politics, sports and especially fatherhood. I recently found myself parted from my job and now the role of fatherhood has a new meaning for me. I’ve always been a hands on father but now I’m the main caregiver, though with the help of grandparents. It’s been a little over a month and I’m still learning how to do it but the cliche is true, this is a great time for bonding with the wee ones. The kids are four and 13 month old (twins), respectively. I realize I’m not the first father to stay home and take care of the children but this is quite a new experience. Being a child of the 80″s I can recall the movie “Mr. Mom” so I feel I have an example to learn from. I’m still looking for other employment opportunities but don’t know how long I’ll be in this role. For now I will focus on enjoying my time with the kids and take a more active role in their development. I can already tell that the kids are loving seeing me so much, which is awesome. While I plan on finding something relatively soon I find myself having a lot of fun seeing the kids reach new milestones. I’m also dedicating myself to enjoying this summer time, going to more gatherings and Red Sox games. Until something comes up I look forward to learning even more in this role. That’s my take.
