So this question is crucial to understanding marriage today! Who gets stuck holding the squirming child while the other tries to keep the child with absolutely NO patience OR attention span fishing? Which by the way, he swears he wants to do, but loses interest after cast number 3.
I had to go to the car and snapped this picture, I didn’t leave her hanging very long. But this is the extent of fishing with kids as young as ours. You have to lug the little one and usually, as long as Animal crackers or Goldfish hold out, he’s going to hang in there with us. The other one though! How people raised children when their lives depended on catching dinner AND raising a child beats me. That’s why the roles were clear cut. But now, who knows what each of us is supposed to be doing. I don’t!
I’m trying to pull my weight and do what I can, and I know I can always do better. I’m not going to try to be the hero with all the answers. Why do I stare into a fire so much? Because I’d like to figure out how to make it better and usually end up making it worse. I know we all see how much more the other person in our lives can accomplish if they only would. But let’s see them for what they already have got on their shoulders.
This is a short one, but good one I hope. Sorry for missing last week as it has been an adjustment going back to work part-time as a substitute teacher. That’s been interesting! I hope that even when we’re busy, we take the time to appreciate who we have in our lives and what they do to make us better people.
