From today’s Boston Globe: Gen X Dad. This is quite good and reflects my own experience. I carpool with my neighbor who’s a teacher which means I’m at my desk by 7:20AM. This also means that I can leave between 3:30 and 4:30 depending on whether I’ve taken a lunch break or not. This means that while I do not see Jack in the morning, I get to spend a lot of time in the evening with him every night and put him to bed. It is exhausting. Especially if I have to turn around and work at night on leftover work that cannot wait until morning. But it’s worth it.
