Back in Green Bay this week, managing children, meeting up with old friends and spending time with family.
That’s about it.
Tonight we’re headed to a Packer game.
The last of the pre-season.
I kind of feel that way about this week, it’s the last of the pre-season.
September always feels that way.
Time to buckle down, make smart choices and apply myself.
I have chafed at the bit of parenthood.
This responsibility hasn’t come easy.
Responsibility of finances, taking care of my body, taking care of life. And it’s with the full time job, the exercise, the buckling down, I have to succumb.
Broken in a good way.
I’m sure you hit twenty-two and turned off all Bacchanalian urges to buy a house, maintain your figure and manage your career. Or maybe it came after you had your children. You now know responsibility to run to your child always, never run away.
I fought this so hard.
This responsibility. This buckling down.
And this week, I just melted into it.
I’m the grown up now.
That’s just how it is.
So I wipe and I hug and I pay attention.
I spend this precious, precious time with my parents.
We make new memories and
succumb to this grown up life.
This very grown up life.
