On not playing favorites
Going40 is jealous of all the time I've been spending over at Everyone's a Critic. EAC is just a baby, helpless, alone, undeveloped. But Going40 is adorable and active and fun to be around. Then I check back in on EAC and there's so much to do! And I come back here and Going40 is having playdates and running around with her friends, and I'm missing all that by being an absent father. It's too much; I feel torn. Am I a bad parent? Is this how it's going to be with two in the house? I love them both, really, I do. It's time for a bath, kids. Come to the water. Daddy loves you very much. Take a deep breath. It will all be okay.
