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?
