I really like Marcos

I really like Marcos.

I really like Marcos because he has stepped up as Mr. Mom this week because I have started working.

I really like Marcos because when Gigi decided not to take a bottle today while I was at work and when despite calling me three times he couldn't reach me, he simply left her in her crib to cry until she fell asleep, and he only felt sad but not angry.

I really like Marcos because after he brought baby to me at work and I stepped out of my five-hour long meeting for an emergency feeding, when I called him a few hours later and he said "Guess where I am" the answer was, "I'm at Gymboree looking at the 60% off sale".

I really like Marcos because even though he completely forgot to bring the diaper bag on his Gymboree shopping trip, he picked me up after work in a great mood, with a happily sleeping baby in the back seat.

I really, really like Marcos.

When a man (or woman) is an upstanding person, s/he earns the respect and admiration of others. Handling the "normal" adversities of daily life with calmness is one of Marcos many good attributes.

I like Marcos, too. But I think it's appropriate that you like him much, much more, Metta! I haven't read your blog in a long time. So fun to see Gigi growing!
