Stories from a Road Dad - Joys of Summer

Updated: Jun 29, 2019

As a father and husband I have two things that I focus on more than anything else.

1. Making sure my kids needs are provided for and they are having adventures of a lifetime.

2. Providing my wife with more than just financial stability but making sure her physical, emotional, and spiritual needs are met.

We love living on the road. Traveling, seeing places once unknown to us, and learning about how others live and thrive is the spice of life for us. There is nothing more enjoyable than waking up in a new place the day after arriving the night before and exploring what is around. Last week we were in the Chicago area. What a place! There was so much to do. We started late and had a hard time finding parking so we only had time to walk the Field Museum and then headed for deep dish pizza at Giordano's Pizza. We made the best of the time we had and didn't stress. We had a great day and didn't spend a lot thanks to a museum membership we were gifted. The majority of our cost was parking and dinner (which was a must).

For us this lifestyle allows me to focus on the needs of my family.. One big need my wife has is time each day by herself that does not involve a kid. This is something that I have not really done a good job of fulfilling. As a husband I get into my routine of making money and paying bills and forget the importance of giving Kate a time out. For us we have more of a traditional family with traditional roles. I work and Kate does the mom stuff. When I am done with the days task, I want to crash in the hammock with the dog and enjoy the evening. I often forget she has been working just as hard doing what needs to be done to make sure the kids schooling gets done, and making sure they are not spending to much time on devices. I am sure I am not the only dad out there that does this. So the question is what can I do to give my wife a break? My goal for this week is to take the kids and do something with them that does not require mom. Maybe the pool or go for a hike. Tune in next week for the details.
