Daddy Day Care

My normal work day consists of working with behaviorally disordered/emotionally impaired adolescents only to come home and hang with the family. Today was different. Due to a day care situation and prior agreement with Dirrty Girl, today was my day to take off and care for the chitlins. So the day goes a little something like this.

6 a.m. - wake up and put on an a ginormous pot of jet fuel to wake up

6:30 am - dirrty feather and little dirt dawg wake up and dirrty girl leaves for work

6:31 - 7:45 am - feed and clothes children, shuttle little dirt dawg to school

8:15 - 9:00 am - fold clothes, check work email, finish fun run newsletter, put air in baby jogger while dirrty feather power naps

9:15 am - 10:45 am - ralk (run and walk) 7.34 miles with dirrty feather. lesson learned can not run and feed baby a is not try!!

10:46 - 11:05 - put dirrty feather down for power nap, shit, shower, and shave (legs!!), shuttle back to school to pick up little dirt dawg

11:06 - 11:15 am - hang out with all the other mom's in a sweat box waiting for their kids

11:16 am - 12:00 am - off to McD's for some grub and try not to engage some strange dude who says "you know, we told my sister when she was young, that she was conceived by the milk man, but your kids look just like you"

12:01 - 1:00 pm - give dirrty feather some lunch, little dirt dawg plays some Candy Land Castle, fold another load of laundry, and put little dirt dawg down for nap.

1:00 - 1:38 pm - dirrty feather says " No sleep til Brooklyn" before succumbing to sleep

2:50 pm - wake up both kids to rush to dr. appt to recheck ear infection that dirrty feather had

3:15 - 4:45 pm - sit on floor in waiting room feeding a bottle to dirrty feather as a pack of wild children (5) run around while mother states "if you don't behave the dr. is going to give you another shot." Little dirt dawg offers up his chair when we finally get one to a mom and the mom states that it is pretty nice of a 3 1/2 yr old to think like that.

6-7 pm: watch little dirt dawg at soccer practice and try and keep dirrty feather from getting into everyone else gear.

7-9:30 pm: Give baths, walk 2 miles on treadmill, finish this blog and go to bed!!

Man, I'm glad I am going to work will be a piece of cake...
