You gave birth to a new life, and now he is giving back, a whole different life, to you. This summer has been such an unusual one. The long hours I spend with the baby, along with the effort I make to avoid his tantrum, always leave me exhausted and with a bunch of work undone at the end of the day. Neither has the humid weather nor the busily working dad made things any easier.
But every once in a while, maybe when you finally get to feel a nice breeze in your face after a couple of gloomy drizzling days, you start to look at the bright side of the story. It’s this little guy who gets you to slow down, to enjoy the sunshine every afternoon, to squat and look at the world from a different angle in a different way.
