Back to Work

  1. Turn off your Away Message
  2. Shut your Office Door
  3. Listen for the sound of your kid through that Door
  4. Think about your kid, and wonder if that thing they did the other day was normal, or weird
  5. Google the thing your kid did for an hour and find that the thing that they did was probably normal, or maybe weird
  6. Think for a bit about how wonderful it is to find strands of your own hair in your kid’s fist, like he’s holding onto you at all times, like you’re with him when he sleeps
  7. Face your Work, finally
  8. ……………….
  9. Wonder how you ever did it Before
