Three of the most wonderful kids in the world.

Go to bed lonely each night.
My stupid car needs to be replaced.
Bittersweet: For the first time in her life, my baby (3 years old) cried because she wanted to be with someone - she’s never shown any real anxiety over being separated from either me or her father. Sunday, when I took them back home after spending the weekend with me, she cried her poor little heart out and said she wanted me. It broke my heart, and yet made me feel so loved.
My son did this to me this morning as I left for work, not as extreme as your case, and I’ll see him in eight hours, but it still makes me sad to have to go. He’s only 16months, and loves to cling to me (and me only, often shunning mother and Waipoh (gandmother) so we can run around the house together).
It broke my heart to have to leave with him sobbing for daddy. I hate being a grown up, i wanna stay home and play with li’l KidDanger!
oh, and I’m 27days into being 32.
The wife is still the angel I fell in love with and married. I love her so sigh
Job is good (although this morning is becoming a bit nurky)
Today is comic book day
My cartooning (outside of work) is beginning to actually go somewhere and be appreciated by people who kinda, sorta matter.
And we’re maybe going for kid #2! (wife wants a girl, I don’t mind).
I have good friends and sweet colleagues, and a rockin’ boss.
The SDMB is full of the nicest folks The Bad
People are still whinging about the movies I love.
I miss my family and friends (most of whom are an ocean and a continent away!)
I’ve been gone for too long (almost nine years now, with only short trips home)
They cut our salaries across the board last year!
…and I’ve not had a pay increase since 2000.
Comics might be delayed cos of that holiday in the US.
The SDMB is full of the nicest folks, but I’ve never met any of them!
So the good outweighs the bad, how can I possibly complain! (but I’d still rather be a stay-home dad, if only MrsDanger earned enough for me to be the domestic dude sigh (she has said many times she couldn’t stay home all the time, even her confinement after giving birth drove her cwazy!).
