Email: Parenting and prose [KF]

My favorite (paper) birthday card describes how much trouble the sender went through to shop for and send just the right card, "because I know how much old people like to get mail." ;-}

I think it [a conversational writing style] shows a person who knows themselves and, often, others, to tell the truth.

The most challenging thing for me [as a father] is balancing all the stuff that I have to "get done" (work at home, clean house, errands) with time devoted fully to my son. I can do it; I give him my full attention (often "time-slicing" or "multi-tasking" as needed); I'm just saying it is often a challenge (esp. if I haven't gotten enough sleep and my nerves feel jangled).
