And so it begins. My wife has been gone for less than four hours and already we’re eating leftovers for dinner. If day old cold pizza doesn’t say single* dad, I don’t know what does. Not that she ate much, but that’s a battle that we fight everyday.
We watched a little TV together. I think that’s compulsory once you enter the fraternity of SD’s. It was My Little Pony — which I fear has become the soundtrack to my life.
In the exhaustion of the day, it was surprisingly easy to get Stormy into bed. However, this seem to have been a ploy as she has now migrated into my room and mined the bed with a series of caltrops in the shape of small plastic toys with pointy armaments. Judy Hopps, Nick Wilde and Shifu look at me from my pillow and I am scared to think about what else is below the covers. I am reduced to looking at this small girl, who somehow manages to take up 80% of the bed, and wondering if I’ll ever sleep again.

* For those who are worried, I’m not actually single. My wife has started a 5-month contract in Australia (yay). This is a Very Good Thing™. Stormy will be staying with me here in Singapore and I have great help both remotely (from my wife) and locally. I’m writing this purely for fun and to practice writing. :-)
