Midterms are upon us again. Here we all are, catching a thirty minute cupcake break with dad in the midst of a swirl of classes, group projects and study sessions.




I do what I can to make sure that the kids at least have a positive interaction with their daddy on days like this. A little goes a long way when you have yet to develop a relationship with the clock, or a need to measure the passage of time.

The difficult part, of course, is beginning my own day’s worth of school after getting the kids home, feeding them dinner and putting them to bed. This is why I am only taking one class this quarter…and why I am still struggling to keep up.

It’s weird to think that this will all be ancient history in June. We’ll be able to rent a house! Buy a dog! Pay for a nanny!

I wonder, though: will we be thirty minute cupcake break happy? What will we give up?
