My daughter didn’t want to go to school today. She was screaming for me when I left. I was crushed, but I know that she enjoys school. She is discovering that this thing is for good, i think, and she wants to came home and hang out with her brother and I. It is hard to know what to do. I want to go back in there and play and sing songs with her, but she needs to get in there and play with the other kids. I don’t want her to not like school, or feel abandoned by me, or feel like she has no say in her own life. But, she is going to school; we decided that. So, in a way, she doesn’t have any choice.
It was a rough morning in stay-at-home-dad land.
