Dad Adam decided to take his two week paternity leave from his job to spend some 24/7 time with his son during this transition. (How wonderful that General Mills makes this provision for new daddies!)
This should prove to be an interesting adventure as Adam takes over the main parental duties during the day.
He was probably in the minority as he attended the "Jungle Jamboree Playtime Group" with Owen. While Jenny was quite used to this dance and playgroup...it was a first for Adam. Other than the fact that Owen decided to 'spit up' a couple of times during the class (Lesson #1: Do not feed baby right beofre the dancing class!) all went well.
Then yesterday I received a call from a bit 'harried' Adam as he explained that he finally got everything together to leave the house with Owen....got partly to his destination....and realized that he had to go back for a forgotten item. Add to that the 19 degree weather that Minneapolis was having yesterday and......well, you can imagine. (Lesson # 2 Stay home when it is 19 degrees outside) : 0
If nothing else, this should give Adam a brand new appreciation for all of the stay-at-home parents out there!
Stay tuned.....today's another day...
