4 Years, 10 Months & 3 Days into Daddyhood

Life… and parenthood. What matters? What doesn’t? A calculation. A thousand. Balancing. Weighing.

Sitting at the dining table, playing with make-up. She is careful, quiet, giving me a chance to read, to write, and Mummy a chance to sleep. There will be mess – which can be cleaned. What of it? Weighing, balancing…

Finding the moments. Considering the pros and cons. Relishing. Savoring.

Parenthood is a joy! But stepping back, taking ‘time out’…

Connect to disconnect (and vice versa).

Defend and retreat… and the battle need not even be fought.
