I Spy a Family

I've been forgetting! Work has been sucking up so much time that I've hardly been posting anything anymore (yes, YES, Huntington, those Sonoma photos are coming!).

Anyway, I (like certain others) have a new nephew — Drew — in Ohio... as of May 29. First time for me being an uncle. And here is where I wax unoriginal about how I remember changing my baby brother's diapers, and now he's a father, blah blah blah. It is all a little unbelievable though.
And I'm feeling my biological clock ticking again. Maybe I should just spend some time with the child, and I'd reconsider my urge to procreate.
What I'm really sad about is having missed the family's week at the "shore" house on Long Beach Island earlier this month. My luck to have had two different jobs during the past 12 years at which summer is the busy season, with no hope of a July vacation.

You know, Joe, we never do take off to Rome on a moment's notice, and that kitchen floor? Cold, hard Mexican ceramic tile.

You should volunteer to babysit children as often as you can. This will cure you of your desire. Even better, join the local pre-school as an assistant during Saturday classes, if they have them. By the end of 3 months you will beg for escape.

Carl, Here's the deal: you work 10-12 hours a day & I'll keep the house spic and span, make gourmet dinners, and have the kid to bed by 7:30 when you get home.

10-12 hours? Can I pad the time with things like lunch (at home preferably) and gym time? I mean as long as I don't tell anyone, right?

Now explain why you can't just ship a kid back and forth between you and Huntington?

Because I'm likely to leave the poor bugger on Muni as I hurry off to stalk some guy.
