A moment on Saturday, February 26, 2022 at 11:36:46 AM

Erin is at yoga. She has given up on tourist-y outings since I and the kids are at best disinterested. She replaced sight-seeing with Yoga and lunch dates. She is satisfied with the substitution.

Baby Lola is upstairs, cooing in her crib following her nap. I'm leaving her in the crib for as long as she will tolerate it. Lola has become demanding of my time. If I am in the room, she wants my focus. I’m the fun parent. Her love and admiration makes me feel good. Her demand for attention is exhausting.

The kids are doing Saturday morning screen time. They set and argue over the timers on the Google Home. Finn wants to play Metroid. Liv and Gray, Minecraft. Both games are played on the Nintendo Switch. The gaming-system sharing can be tense but they make it work. I appreciate their ability to navigate the situation.

I’m sipping on mate to replace breakfast and ingest a dose of caffeine as I read email and click on links. I enjoy these slow mornings more than schlepping the kids through a touristy area of Buenos Aires.
