In All Fairness

My FIL just left.  YES!  In all fairness, he's of a very different generation.  Darling is older than me and he was a later-in-life baby.  Add all those years up and FIL is slightly younger than my grandparents.  He never changed a diaper.  Well, maybe he changed one or two.  Fathers in his generation didn't really do that - or anything else connected with childcare.  He comes from the generation of fathers who got involved with their kids when they were old enough to throw a ball.  It only makes sense that he rankles me - the woman who believes both parents should share parenting and household responsibilities.  

Either way, he's about to board a plane to fly home and we'll see him again many months from now.  And there was much rejoicing.
