He did have Lauren to help him and BOTH Lauren and her friend, Claire, with him at COSI (he's not crazy after all - back-ups needed). And COSI did only last two hours on the dot... before he threw in the towel... but still impressive nonetheless.
He is a wee bit antsy and has a tiny bit of tone, just a tiny bit... you know, like an elephant is the tiniest mammal on land... when I get home. He quickly writes it off (read: justifies it) as the long day with the kids and I am thinking (okay, I said it too)... 'ahhh grasshopper, now you have learned.'
Yet, I have not found him huddled in a corner, rocking back and forth and drooling. No. He is still going strong. He even took Lauren and Claire to see Harry Potter last night (of course that might have been a good excuse to get out of the house and sleep for a couple hours). And who knows what he has in store for the kids tomorrow... but they are definitely having a good time on their staycation adventures with daddy.
Wait a minute, do you think he's trying to steal my 'favorite parent' status?!! Hmmmmm...
The only photos I have of the COSI adventures (or of any adventures this week)... from Lauren's cell phone: Ethan on the carriage in the old town (kinda creepy lookin' huh?)
Oh wait! Daddy just walked in (he's found a reason to escape the house every night this week - not that I can blame him) and he does have one photo from COSI on his phone after all!
