Daddy Daycare

From Mark:

Working at home most of the time is a double-edged sword. I had a productive day, although my working hours are now split more than ever into work and other things.

I finally got some bills paid, made arrangements for student loans, emailed back and forth with some doctors, tried to make arrangements to adopt out a cat we’ve been fostering for waaaaayyyyy too long, etc., etc. etc.

The best distraction of the workday, without a doubt, is Daddy Daycare.  Feeding, chatting, singing, and playing with the Little Owl is pure joy. Watching her little face light up when I walk into the room is exhilarating.

Love love love little Getty Spaghetti.

    Mark and Kate, reading the last posts of yours reminded me of something I read in a text book many (many) years ago. Although I never once opened the book for the purpose intended (studying and the like) I found a few things worth remembering and, even though this is about a child more than a baby, I thought I’d post part of it for you too. It’s by Alan Beck.

    What Is a Girl?
    Little girls are the nicest things that happen to people. They are born with a little bit of angelshine about them and though it wears thin sometimes, there is always enough left to lasso your heart….
    A little girl can be sweeter (and badder) oftener than anyone else in the world…A girl is Innocence playing in the mud, Beauty standing on its head, and Motherhood dragging a doll by the foot.
    Mother Nature always manages to select your favorite….They disprove the law of supply and demand – there are millions of little girls, but each is as precious as rubies.
    God borrows from many creatures to make a little girl. He uses the song of a bird, the squeal of a pig, the stubbornness of a mule, the curiosity of a cat, the softness of a kitten, and to top it all off He adds the mysterious mind of a woman.
    Who else can cause you more grief, joy, irritation, satisfaction, embarrassment, and genuine delight?…
    Yes, she is a nerve-racking nuisance, just a noisy bundle of mischief. But when your dreams tumble down and the world is a mess – she can make you a king when she whispers, “I love you best of all!”

    In closing, as much as I agree with the many posts that say Getty is a lucky girl to have you as parents, I think that the two of you are blessed to have Getty.

    Love to the three of you.
