Maybe a disruption to the routine is not so bad.
I may have cussed like a sailor when I found out that my work day routine had been disrupted by the sudden closure of my daughter Hazel’s day home this week.
It would now be daddy daycare.
I accepted the fact that Hazel would likely see some extra ipad time while I attempted to work nearby.
The multiple questions and demands didn’t create the most efficient working environment:
“Hey dad can we do VTR (her term for VR Goggles)?”,
“Dad get my blanket!”,
“Daddy there’s a corgi in my game!”,
etc. etc. etc.
However, I have to admit that it was quite magical to have some unplanned one on one time.
This unexpected adjustment to my day tested my patience and adaptability.
It also provided me the opportunity to work on being
and continue to put the first things first.
When viewed through the ‘right’ lens,
I was able to see the gift for what it was.
Now that’s a peak ethos!
