Today was another typical Monday for me: wake up at 6:30 A.M., get me and my monkey ready, drop her off at pre-school and then head of for school myself. Aside from sleeping in the same bed, in the room I grew up in, nothing about our morning routine is particularly out of the norm for a father-daughter team. However, my Monday and Wednesday schedule is one that keeps me on campus until 8:30 P.M.
I’m not complaining, but trying to explain that as a single dad, it takes help. Be it from your employer, or in my case, my awesome parents who are willing to pick my monkey up from school and keep her from breaking things until I get home. My family is awesome and help me keep my professional dreams alive while keeping my daughter alive at the same time.
