Lots of bonus points today

It is still early in the day and L has already earned numerous bonus points today. I have a work meeting this morning and he offered to take Miss K out of the house to the playground and then lunch so that she won't be in my hair while I'm attending the meeting (for those confused, I work from home so the meeting will be taking place via the internet). He got some extra points for doing this because he has a headache and instead of getting grumpy is still doing this.

It might not sound like a lot to some people but for L this is big. L has always had problems relating to Miss K. He'd never been around kids much so he is a bit clueless at times when it comes to babies/toddlers. That in combination with his mental health problems and the way he grew up has caused some issues between the two of them. They both have made a lot of headway over the past few months though and it just warms my heart to see them get along so much better (for the most part).

I now try to encourage regular 'Daddy - Miss K' dates and I know they both enjoy them immensely. It gives them a chance to connect one-on-one, a time they both need.

For now, I am enjoying the quiet after putting our youngest down for a nap while waiting for the meeting to start soon. Today will be a good day.
