Paternity Leave: Day 26

Today was hang out with dad/grandpa day! Just to keep things clear, from now on I’m going to refer to him as “dad”, even though he is “grandpa” to Samantha. After seeing to Sammy’s mid-morning feeding, dad and I headed out to Babies ‘R’ Us to go shopping for a baby scale, cuz we wanted […]

Light day today. Sam and I went to the ever-fabulous El Pollo Loco for Chris’ lunch, after Sam got her usual lunch of milk in bottle. After that we window-shopped at Babies ‘R’ Us and Costco, before returning home by way of Vons for a couple things. The afternoon was pretty lazy: we both took […]

Samantha is screaming in the other room. I hope she stops soon and goes to sleep. Dad is here vising for a couple days, which is nice. He’s sitting across the table from me right now doing his own internet things on his Macbook Air. Sam is still screaming. I may have to go soon. […]

Paternity Leave: Day 21

August 24, 2014

Last night I didn’t get to sleep until after 4 a.m., so Megan was kind enough to let me sleep in this morning. It wasn’t Sam that kept me up, just general insomnia. Still, Sammy slept great—until about 10:30 or so! Regardless, 80% of the family went on an adventure today! While leaving Isis to […]

Today was more government offices. We started with the California Employment Development Department, to try to track down my Paid Family Leave stuff, since there is no Paid Family Leave office this side of Fresno, and I wasn’t about to drive there! They said that this wasn’t the right office, but the lady there was […]

Today marks roughly the half-way point in my leave. We spent it out in Van Nuys waiting in line for her birth certificate. After acquiring the document and getting us both some lunch, I dropped by the office to use the scanner to scan it in. I need to attach it to a leave claim […]
