Paternity leave has been great. Though I didn’t realized in the beginning that how much work babies are, I truly enjoyed it. My biggest frustration was I ended up making way too many plans but could not get time to focus on them.
I did took a course on iOS app development, did some React programming. Started a massive purge project and got rid of a lot of stuff that is just sitting in the house. I also did some work related work too.
But half way through my paternity leave I realized, I was too stressed with all the projects and taking care of the baby. I had to focus on only the baby and if I could do something else, then great. That’s when I started to enjoy paternity leave a lot better and had more fun with the baby.
