Sean's First Father's Day

Sean and Dad spent most of their first Father's Day sitting in the recliner with a refreshing bottle of milk in one hand and the remote in the other. While they were alternating between watching soccer games and cycling races, Mom went to the hospital to visit her Dad who is recovering from a quadruple bypass. He's doing well, feeling good enough to joke around with all the nurses. My Mom is looking forward to having him home again. On the discharge instructions it says he will be able to dust and cook, two things he couldn't do before the bypass. The miracles of modern medicine. After Sean and James' long hard day watching sports and napping, we went out for Thai food. Sean had a pretty good time until the entrees came and the waitress didn't bring him one. We tried to explain to him that he doesn't have the fine motor skills needed to use the chopsticks but it didn't calm him down. So we hurriedly finished and paid the check. He instantly fell asleep as soon as we put him in the car. Later Sean got his bath, faithful readers of the blog will remember how much he used to hate that, but like diaper changes, he has come to accept and even enjoy it. Here's a picture of the little guy in his robe and slippers. Cute as a button! All in all it was a pretty mellow day.
