One of the big things on my list of things to do while back in the U.S. is… work. While I was at it, I figured, I had an opportunity to show Bode that his old man’s not (just) a travel bum.
Every once in a while we wonder how our current lifestyle will affect him later on in life. There are lot’s of things to consider. We generally see everything as positive. Still, his impression of his parents has to be a bit different than other kids. When most of us grew up, our dad’s left for the office every morning – a pretty normal routine. Well, I don’t get up and head to the office every day. Instead, I say things like “Get in the bus! We’re going to find penguins!” That’s been our normal for the past several years.
So, now I’m going into an office and he wants to know what it’s all about. Mostly, he wanted to look though a microscope. Mission accomplished… but not as fun as penguins.
