Oh, how the tears did flow.
Friday was the last day of preschool. Parents were invited to the last 45 minutes of the half day for songs, snacks and goodbyes. Many of the mothers were weeping openly, and I felt their pain. I tried to console them with the thought that September is a mere three months away.
They just gave me dirty looks, but that’s okay. I know they will survive the summer. And I’m pretty confident that I will too.
Still, with the kids on my hands full time again, my 12 hours a week of unfettered productivity are gone for a while. Which brings us to the bad news.
Captain Dad is on summer hours as of today.
So, other than the weekly cartoons I leave as proof that I’m still alive, you can expect little more than a few sporadic short posts.
But that doesn’t mean I won’t be using the moonlight hours to continue the never ending chronicles of Captain Dad. To the contrary. I will. But I will be doing it for…
(Drumroll, please, because here comes the good news.)
…Captain Dad — The Manly Art of Stay-at-Home Parenting, the forthcoming book. Okay, maybe fifth-coming, because it doesn’t come out until a year from now, just in time for Father’s Day 2013.
The manuscript is due at the start of September, which gives us a very fitting nine months expectancy after that until the book comes out. (I’m sorry if that sounds more graphic than I intended.)
Anyway, it’s something to look forward to and should provide a new surge of energy and sense of purpose here at CaptainDad.org once we resume blogging as usual.
Assuming I survive the summer, of course.
