Each day I packed and unpacked my office into my Day Owl bag. Each day I zipped up hours of personal and professional development, new and exciting projects, and a worry or two (hundred) so I could move on to my real job -- being a dad.
That all came to a screeching halt when 2020 did its thing. Masks. Contactless ordering. Quarantine.
My mobile office transitioned to a dedicated workspace. My backpack? It became my Dad Bag - the home for everything I needed for day trips and peaceful walks with my two-year-old. I frantically shoved snacks and clothes into it when our second child came three weeks early. A flurry of activity ended with me meeting my son a few hours later.
With a toddler on the move and another catching up quickly, I look forward to the bike rides and hikes and playground excursions and everything else fatherhood throws my way -- with a beer stowed in the chimney pocket if things get too crazy.
As the lines of work and life become more and more blurred in this crazy new world, I'm ready to carry on with life -- and whatever it throws my way.
