This is what happens when you are four weeks into summer and your boys are have settled into sleeping and hanging out. By hanging out, I mean hanging all over me.
Don’t get me wrong, I love it. But sometimes a dad needs to breathe, stretch out—take a break from being the events coordinator.
Although I can’t complain too much, as Naomi tells me, part of it is because I will give in to almost every request to swim, play wiffle ball, grab yogurt, go to the water parl. Gah. I just can’t seem to say no to these summer days with my boys.
Admittedly I pay for it later with exhausation, but there is this reward—Baileys Cookies and Cream Popsicles. These are so perfect for those hot evenings, when I’m done with the day and I just melt into the sofa to watch my favorite show and have a couple of these.
