Alejandro and Laura Bautista. Alejandro and Laura Bautista.

It is early Sunday evening, and Laura just walked in the door of the suburban home she shares with her husband, Alejandro, and their infant daughter, Kennedy. She has spent the last three full days attending MBA classes in downtown Philadelphia, while Alejandro spent the weekend as a solo dad. Laura is greeted by a quick kiss from Alejandro and Kennedy’s toothless smile and tiny arms reaching out for her. Laura willingly accepts the hand-off and immediately takes over the evening parenting shift, which includes Kennedy’s dinner, play time and bedtime story. After finishing the bedtime routine, Laura gives Kennedy a quick cuddle before laying her down in her crib and heading back downstairs to get snacks and bottles ready for daycare the next day. She passes Alejandro, who has been sitting at the kitchen table doing his own MBA schoolwork for the past few hours, and suggests an easy dinner. They eat together before heading to the couch. Side by side, Alejandro completes another school reading assignment while Laura catches up on emails she missed on Friday. Both yawning, they head to bed in preparation for work the next day.
