daddy time

yesterday was cam's first day of vacation -- his company shuts down the week between christmas and new year's -- and paul had him so beat down by the time they picked me up from work it was not even funny. okay, well, it was a little funny.

in the car on the way home, cam frantically tried to keep paul awake (because, as all parents of young children know, a poorly-timed nap means DISASTER! and AGONY!) and his efforts were a little scary to behold. he tried to get paul to look at things outside, he made random sounds, he goggled his eyes, etc. etc. etc. luckily paul didn't fall asleep because i think cam would have crashed the car right then and there out of despair.

as expected, the house was a minor shambles (cam: you should have seen the kitchen before). i cleaned up and made soup for paul while cam went out to grab dinner and some much-needed distance. the rest of the evening was rather uneventful.

we all retreated to the bedroom -- paul decided he was sleeping in our room again -- by 8:30. cam claimed he wasn't going to sleep, but he was out before the rest of us. poor thing. i know i'd have a really hard time as a stay-at-home mom, but i think the chances of cam surviving the sahd life are even slimmer.
