I got a bit of a shock today when I went to check the schedule at my part time gig...I start back on Monday not Friday as I had thought. Now the 5 day difference doesn't seem like that much but, to be perfectly honest, we haven't spent a whole lot of time nurturing Dad's role when Mom goes back to work. I have enjoyed being the caregiver 99% of the time and Dad was happy to let me. But now I need to surrender some of my Mommy time to give Dad a chance spread his wings and have confidence in caring for our little guy. First obstacle to tackle, what to do when baby is crying? Here are my steps for Dad:

Hopefully by step 4 our little guy is asleep. Hopefully. This always seems to work for me, let's hope it works for Dad too.
