There isn’t much time off being a dad. You might say work is that but you are not switched off and left to your own devices, in fact in many ways getting home and being with Sofia is a break from that and allows you to switch off with the most taxing decision being what Elmo duet you are going to watch with her.
Being an introvert which is what I am it’s sometime just nice to do what I used to which is wandering aimlessly with little objective. Getting your hair cut and visiting the dentist with a sneaky coffee thrown in is just that.
It’s not that I’m hard done by, I actually do get these moments to myself enough. It’s just nice to reflect and enjoy them.
