So this is where he's going to go.
We took a few pictures a while back to get him used to the idea that he's going to preschool. We just happened to have him around as we were dropping off some papers, so now he got to experience it firsthand. Naturally for him, he didn't want to leave once he saw it.
For almost two years, I've had the immense pleasure and joy of being a part-time stay-at-home dad. As much as I agonized giving up whole workdays -- which ate considerably into getting-the-book-done time -- I never complained, nor regretted it. Few dads in particular either can or choose to spend time with their kids, so I knew that I had a good gig going here. I also knew that it would end all too soon.
Tuesday was my last full day with him and I think he was prepping me by being as impossible as he could for most of the day, so that by the end of the day I would say, "OK, fine. Thank goodness he's a-goin' to school." That said, I'm already still looking to see when are the first days when, gosh darn it, the center is closed and look! it's my day off!
