As a father of nine (and a fellow St. Louisan) I want to applaud you for recognizing the importance of fathers playing with their children. In fact, as a grandfather now, I find that my grandchildren also love playing with me (and I with them).
But I'm concerned about you, Cameron. Your bio says "Cameron works as a project manager by day, and teaches Spanish on the side. He is an aspiring homesteader and writer and God willing, hopes to run a small farm in the future. He is also the editor of a blog geared toward Catholic masculinity called The Seasick Catholic". That's six things. All this in addition to two hours per day commuting? Cameron, it's way too much.
You are probably a young father. Young fathers typically have trouble adjusting to the constraints of married life and children after a carefree youth - I know I did.
I strongly advise you cut ut down these extracurricular activities and only pursue one at a time. Your wife will greatly appreciate it (if you doubt me run it past her and see what she says) and your son will greatly benefit from it. Give the lion's share of your free time to God and your family. You will not regret it.
