A few people have asked me what I will be doing on my Internet vacation (which starts tonight at midnight). I’ll be doing my usual. Writing, reading, working at the day job, and hanging out with the family. But if you are looking for a specific example I’ll give you two.
Yesterday, I brought home a balsa wood glider for the Little Man to play with. He loved it. He also broke it rather quickly. Kelly took him to a store this morning to get a replacement and for about an hour, while the weather was particularly pleasant, the Little Man and I were out in front of the house taking turns flying the plane and playing ari traffic control. The Little Miss joined in as well.
An even better example took place this afternoon. Kelly went out to lunch with friends so I was home with the kids. At some point, we all three went upstairs and put on some music. At first, the Little Man wanted to listen to the Superman theme, and we did that. Afterward, I put on some Bing Crosby. The Little Miss was sitting on my lap in the rail chair and the Little Man was on our bed. All three of us drifted pleasantly, listening to Bing croon. Eventually, we all fell asleep. The kids slept for nearly 2 hours with Bing playing in the background the whole time.
That is an almost perfect example of what I hope to be able to do more of on my Internet vacation.
