with Avi Spivack
Hi, I'm Avi, and I try to put the work and the dad together, with mild success. This is all about trying to give you a view from what it looks like on the dad-man's side of the world, and I hope you find my ruminations humorous because I try not to take myself too seriously.
From Mom/Kid to Me.
That’s how it went, and pretty quickly, too.
I was dumb to think that I could pound 5,000 mg of Vitamin C every day and avoid it, and now here I sit, sniffling on the couch, sucking a Cold-eeze, coughing up small insects, and counting the minutes until I will pop my two nightly Nyquil (oh greenies, how I love thee!).
At least I have Monday Night Football in HD.
So normally, this particular bout of family sickness would not have been an issue: we would juggle the mornings, afternoons, or whatever, while sick kid slowly recovered (thankfully, this was just a chest cold), and played the “work from home” card.
Of course, last week I was on a business trip, wife and kid were both sick, and then wife had crazy work stuff to do so I stayed home for 2 days, and (drumroll please) this would be the first test as to whether my new job (which is now 6 weeks old) would live up to its promise as “family-friendly.”
I am still employed. (thank you, thank you, I’m here all week).
In all seriousness, the billing stayed true: I emailed my team, told them I would be home, and not a peep, all good. (by the way, I should own Leap Frog stock, and whoever invented wi-fi should win a Nobel).
Uh-oh, coughing child…time for Benadryl?
How do you cope now that the Northeast’s cold/flu season is officially hitting us HARD?
