I spent most of the weekend unplugged, and it felt good. I'm not saying I didn't use electronic devices, but I wasn't going to that Internet over and over again. It felt good not doing so.
Of course, Simon is requiring a high amount of attention right now, so that's part of it. But I watched movies, played with my boy, fetched carry-out and just did stuff. Tonight, I had to take a break from movie watching to try and calm down that little boy, who was not sleeping. Sitting on my lap, he grabbed his old burp rag, put it on my shoulder, then climbed up and put his head there. It was pretty much the cutest thing he has ever done, and that moment was one of the best dad moments so far.
As a very important person told me this week, "You know, it's all about your wife and kid. The rest is just a rounding error."
