Chronicles of a Single-ish Dad Guy. Part 2: Oops I crapped my pants

I’m struggling here.

Alright I came into this week composed and have been doing just fine. Honestly, I could do this well enough going forward so long as I hold my daily routine. So why, if I’ve got this level of confidence, would I say that I’m struggling?

To put it simply, I’ve got a meeting that I need to facilitate at 8:00 in the morning tomorrow that was set up 2 weeks ago. This is complicated because their school doesn’t open until 8:15. This isn’t why I’m struggling though. I’ve already developed a contingency plan for this.

I have already made arrangements with their school to have them dropped off early at 7:45. This give me exactly 15 minutes to make it to the office. which cuts it close, but is feasible.

Here’s why I’m struggling; routine inconsistency and crappy pants. Potty training the 3 year old means that there is a real potability that there will be some surprise in his pants the moment we get in the car and no sooner….. Why? Because that very scene happened this morning.

I suppose the only thing to do is see what tomorrow brings and try to get him to go before we go.

Until then I want to say that the highlight of the day was when the boys realized that I made the beds. Apparently a made bed is a kid magnet

Other than that, we had a normal night that included Mac & Cheese with hot dogs and a book before bed. I say lack of excitement on a Wednesday is a win.
