Stay-At-Home Dad

This week Tracey has gone into work, so I am the 'supervising adult'. Over the last two days I have gained a whole new appreciation for what Tracey has accomplished in the last 8 months.

I have decidedto keep a bit of a journal ove the next few days to highlight our major events.

Today, 8 am:

Elijah has decided that "gates" are located throughout our house. He closes them arbitrarily and then gets exasperated when anyone walks through 'the gate' without unlocking and opening it with the customery sound of a key click.

8: 10 am Sloane filled her pants big time, and after seemed really content. Who wouldn't?

8:25 Sloane was getting aggitated with little to do while I loaded a few photos onto this blog, so I decided to give her the small beach ball. She was stoked about holding the ball until Elijah apprehended it. I informed Elijah that he was to return the ball to Sloane immediately. He placed it just out of her reach. With coaxing he eventually placed it back on her lap.

8:27 I had a bright idea. I suggested to Elijah that he play catch with Sloane. He then placed the ball about three feet in front of her and proceeded to kick the ball quite hard. It drilled he straight in the face. Perhaps to a three-year old "catch" and "soccer" are similar.

8:28-8:32 consoling Sloane

9:00 am Elijah gets a nose bleed and I spend 10 minutes explaining how a little Vaseline up the nose might help him out. (I have experience in these matters)

9: 19 I help Elijah put on his goalie pads.

9:20 I sing Oh Canada for the third time this morning and we proceed to play hockey

9:22 We take shots.

9:23 I take off Elijah's goalie pads.

stay tuned
