So my work is pretty cool. I get 2 weeks of paternity leave when my wife has a child. I also saved up 12 vacation days and have used it all at once. I've been home for 3 weeks now, with another week and a half to go.
All I can say is that is a great decision I've made. I've had all the time to bond with my boy. It's been amazing. I have sadly started to drift off into thoughts of work. I love spending time with him, but work is a large part of my life. I feel bad that I think of work while I'm with him. He and my wife are my life, or really probably like 99% of my life.
