Full on dad
Responding to my previous post on Latham's turn to full-time fathering, a friend questioned whether Latham was being genuine about it, how long being a full-time home-dad would last, and whether it was really about positioning himself for something later.
I think the response may be found in his Diaries. Though I haven't read it myself, Robert Manne's review essay of the Diaries in the recent The Monthly reveal some key points:
- Latham was really taken with his two boys
- He had been wondering which were his greater achievements: those from being in politics, or being a father and raising children.
"A day you miss with you kids is a day you never get back."Yep.
