Parental Empathy

"It's not the temper tantrums that get to me, it's the whining." This was said by U. after spending 4 days at home with Astrid over the Thanksgiving holiday.

U. is a devoted father and he works a lot. The most common phrase Astrid uses when talking about her dad is "Papa go work" or "Papa working". So to be home for 4 straight days over the Thanksgiving holiday was a real treat. Both father and daughter got to spend a lot of one on one time together.

And now U. has a better understanding of what it's like to spend 24/7 with a 2 1/2 year old - all the joys and tribulations. =)
