I’m working from home today. The living room is tidy, there are no dishes in the sink, and the dog is sitting quietly at my feet. All of which means that T is in daycare. It seems serene, which is wonderful for me, but boring for you. Sorry.
I suppose it is a good thing to have a break from time to time, to get caught up on the work to be done. But I’m at a loss as to what I should be doing right now, and when that happens I start projects. When K was breastfeeding the Wee Baby T and I found myself watching and unable to directly help I started building things. Now I’m taking a more cerebral approach. Introducing my newest project: ProDoula Childbirth Educator!
That’s right, I’m going to teach people how to have babies. I mean… not THAT part.
What started as a plan to join the few male Doulas (or Dudelas as I assume they would like to be called), has evolved into a more reasonable personal development plan. After a year of taking care of the Wee Baby T, I have found that I really quite enjoy this Dadding thing, and I like to think I’m quite good at it… Time to step up my game and become certified to share my knowledge with parents-to-be.
Wish me luck, this test is intense!
