When Sean is home, we have a very loose schedule. I'm not sure when he became the fun parent, but I lovelovelove that the time the boys get with him is quality time.
We heard horror stories before school started about parents in the program who didn't even have time to help their kids with homework. It is insanely busy, but I think it all depends on the person and what they make time for.
In reality, I think he spends more individual time with each of them now than he did as a floor nurse.
Simon likes to pick fights. :)
He's got quite the mouth on him for such a skinny boy. He's getting big enough to pack some weight with his punches, though. After years of trying to figure out why boys are so barbaric, I figured it out...Wrestling is really just hugging. Once you get past the sweating, trash talk, throat punches and fear of injury, it's actually quite sweet.
I hope my boys remember these days when they're older. I hope they continue being barbarians with their own kiddos. Mostly, though, I hope they remember to visit their wrestling partner and photographer on a regular basis.
