Soccer Dad checking in. Been on a long-delayed vacay for the past five days. A lot of firsts: first airplane ride with a 3-year-old, first trip to San Diego (Pacific Beach, in particular), first Santouka ramen. And as you parents know, you need a vacation from the vacation when you travel with a toddler. As expected there were a couple meltdowns. How do parents of multiples do it? Back to work on Monday.
