Missing Dad – Long Hours and How We Manage, Part Two

Last week, I wrote a post (here) about Mr. Confetti’s long hours at work and how it impacts Colin on a day-to-day basis. Judging by the comments, it seems, as I suspected, that I am not alone. Since Mr. Confetti is traveling for business this week, I have plenty of time in the quiet evening [...]
