A Golden Lining

One of the greatest fears I had going back to full-time work was the lack of quality contact time with my children. That and the increased responsibilities for solo evening care had me worried because the dinner/bath/bed routine can be somewhat less than quality time. My foreboding, though the year is just begun, has for the most part been unneeded. The increased evening solo hours have given me time to bond with the kids. There have certainly been unpleasant evenings, but there have been plenty of good ones, too. It is more than a silver lining; in fact, once the lining becomes gold, it may not even be a lining anymore. These are just the golden moments of our time together as long as we all make it so.
