Amani and Stella flew out to Orlando this afternoon to spend a few days with Faith. I can’t help but notice how quiet our house is in the little guy’s absence.
So I’m missing him, and reflecting on the joys and challenges of being a dad. These two audio clips that I recorded last night hammer home both angles.
The first: Amani “reading” a book to me on the chair in his room, just before I put him in his bed to sleep.
The second: a silly conversation with Amani while unsuccessfully trying to get him to poop in his potty. (One of his daycare teachers says some boys aren’t even potty trained by age 4; I certainly hope Amani isn’t one of them!)
