Fair and Balanced Fathering
As my kids grow older, I find myself becoming more conscious of the unwritten equal time law. I've got a son and a daughter, and when I find myself spending a significantly greater amount of time with one over the other, I make an effort to balance it out.
This past weekend, due to a variety of coincidental happenings, I found myself spending a lot of time with my son. Big chunks of both Saturday and Sunday were spent together while my daughter and wife did their thing. I now seek to compensate, to ensure Michelle has similar daddy time. What I'd like to avoid is that dynamic I see in other families where the father takes the boy and the mother takes the girl.
I know who I'm taking to see Walking With Dinosaurs next week. How could I ever resist a face like this?
