Father's Log: Day One

We had a great time yesterday, and I hope that it's a preview of the years to come. There was fun to be had, diapers to be changed, bananas to be eaten, and all sorts of marvelous adventures. I learned some things, and I'm sure that I'll continue to learn as we progress further into the adventures of daddy-ness.

1. When Marion is having bananas for lunch, do not change her clothing until after the meal.

I just hadn't considered it. It's not a big deal, but it's unfortunate that Keleigh's first day of coming home after work showed Marion at her messiest, and with her...well, this leads us to point #2.

2. If child is not happy with clothes being put on her, and when you get the onesie on, it happens to be on backwards, don't worry.

It's not like I've never put her clothes on her before, but for some reason (I blame this particular onesie) I put this one on backwards, and so Keleigh came home to a drooly, banana-y, backwards clothes wearing child. Yes, it was a good day.

I guess I'm just kinda laid back, and really, is it going to be that bad if she has her clothes on backwards. I mean, at this age, the clothes are almost symetric, and she certainly didn't seem to mind. Only fight the real battles.

And day two begins. My hair dye is coming out very quickly, and I'm not very pleased about it. I don't have a stockpile of dye, so I'd have to go and actually purchase more if I wanted to do it again, and that means spending money. Now, hair dye isn't expensive (about $1 per application for me), but do I really want to spend the money? I'm pleased that I got the chance to dye, and I may or may not repeat.

Marion's napping now, and hopefully I can get her back to sleep when she wakes up in 1/2 hour (that's her normal cycle). Things to do, books to read, dinner to think about.
