Sometimes when my wife works late and I will be eating dinner alone, I open a bottle of wine and eat a big bowl of frozen yogurt with chocolate chips for dinner. I also spend the evening looking up new blogs and vlogs to get addicted to. That is what I am doing tonight. I want to appreciate this time of not having to provide 3 meals a day (plus snacks!) for a child. If I want to act like a kid myself and eat fro-yo for dinner, I can do it! If I want to act like a teenager and drink half a bottle of wine on a work-night, I can do it! My days of freedom are numbered, and I need to remember to appreciate life as it is right now.

This blog is about my wife's and my experiences as we embark on the adventure of making a baby and then raising the child. I'm a PhD candidate trying to balance dissertation work and non-profit work with full-time parenting and home-maker endeavours. I'll candidly share my successes and failures in this balancing act.
