Here I am. Yet again, over a year passes and I have done nothing here.

The baby is now 17 months old, my oldest is now 7 years old and I feel very tired, very, very tired. My days are consumed with working, watching the kids, giving my stay-at-home wife sanity time and sleep….pretty much in that order. It’s not easy, I give my wife a ton of credit, because I only have them for a short period of time and I am beat at the end of the day.

As an older dad, I find that my tolerance threshold is short and getting shorter every day. The oldest boy gets the brunt of my nastiness because as the eldest I expect more from him and I give him a hard time.

Yes, I feel guilty but I get over that quickly. In the past year my boy went from 1st grade to 2nd grade and his learning skills appear to have regressed, which requires his mom and me to be more diligent in making sure he completes his homework and assignments. Hmm…. Things were much easier when all I had to worry about was what the boy was playing.

The youngest is walking and starting to get the hang of running but speech still eludes him….and he is so different from the eldest. The first one was quiet, easy going and complacent….the total opposite of this one…

Again, patience is something that I have to work on every single day. I don’t like it, but I have to do it.

At the end of the day, it’s what’s best for them, not what I want.
