New Identity

Re my post on identity the other day, it's becoming clear that being a stay-at-home dad is an identity unto itself. So although I no longer regularly confirm some of the professional or intellectual aspects of my identity, I am cutting out broad swathes of hot, fresh identity. And I'll have it forever: I will always have be grounded in this special time I have together with my son.

Likewise, our identity as a family is just taking off. The other day, each of the Monkey's parents was kissing one of his chubby cheeks, and he was laughing his head off. The more moments like that I can add to my identity, the better.

Third week on the job as full-time Monkey Daddy, and the insights just keep on coming.
