I’ve been working on some software deadlines lately. This morning, I woke up early to get some coding in. My wife woke up at the same time, to take the dogs for an extended walk.
I was deep in the code when my youngest son came upstairs.
“I know you’re working and all,” he said. “But what about breakfast? And could you help me pack my lunch for today?”
We ran downstairs and I threw together a breakfast. After we ate, my wife returned. While she made their lunches, the boys and I played some basketball. Then it was time for them to go to their adventure camp.
Not a bad start for them… but kind of embarrassing for me.
