Starting parental leave today
Well, today marks the beginning of my parental leave from work. I don't return to the office until Monday, July 2nd.

After we had Mira in 2003, I took 30 days off. I found that that is the perfect length of time for a leave. You actually want to go back to work after the first 3 weeks or so. Any longer and you start to question things like capitalism and the idea of working for a living. Not good when you have four kids and a gadget/video game addiction.

I have a long to-do list of things I would like to get done over the break; however, I am going to leave that alone this week while everyone gets used to having a new baby around.
