We’ve done “long distance daddy,” for a week so far this time around and things are going great. It’s the first time that I can actually say with certainty that I haven’t really hated life at all this past week. Most “first weeks” are filled with anxiety and things going wrong, but this time around it has been peaceful and happy for the most part. Don’t get me wrong, life with six kids under fourteen is no picnic in the park, but it is a pizza party at the arcade. Crazy, loud, fun and exhausting! Life is good!
