The PL stands for Parental Leave, which I am currently doing for six months.

One of the things that is hardest for this dad staying home is the pain I feel when I stay up late to watch sports. Our boys don’t care. They are still getting up around 6:30 or 7 am.

I am not that big a fan of the Spurs either. But that is only because they always win. As a team, they are the blue print every one should follow.
