Fatherhood Friday - Here's What Happened...



It is Friday! I look forward to Fridays for a couple of reasons. First, it's the end of my work week and I can walk away from my desk and not have to answer the phone, check email, or do anything work related for two days. My wife and daughter are at home all week while I sit here and watch the clock at work. It makes me crazy because I'd rather be with the both of them so on Friday when I can pack up for the weekend I can't wait to get home.

Friday night is also good for something else. Once our little one goes to bed my wife and I celebrate with a pizza...It's our own little pizza night. The routine is the same every Friday. First it's bath time, then she gets fed, I call for the pizza, we tuck the baby in and I go pick it up. By the time I get home we can just relax. We are big fans of the shows on USA especially Monk, Psych, and their latest series White Collar. So we eat our pizza, catch up on the week, talk about baby girl, and just unwind with some mindless TV.

Time is very important in a marriage especially when there are children involved. We're new at the parenting game and it would be very easy to lose track of our marriage in all those dirty diapers, teething, play time, etc. We need time for us and pizza night gives is just one of the ways we get that. It seems small, but it works for us...I can almost smell the pizza already!

oh Pizza night is so very important in a marriage with children....we have our movie/pizza night and weekend where we do our best to get our kids to spend at least one night a week or two at my moms...those moments w/out kids weather they are sleeping or gone are precious ones that keep us going though the week.

Enjoy the pizza and keep on enjoying those Friday night dates on the couch.

Traditions, no matter how small, are so important as a family/couple. The wife and I watch The Office together when the kids are in bed, but when they are up we watch Ninja Warrior together usually every week night.

Quite honestly, I just stopped by because I loved the title of your blog! This was my dad's favorite saying ("daddy's tired") and he just passed away last year, so your blog made me smile.
