Life at the office these days:
Yesterday eve, my dear and wonderful Husbone departed for the Road. It’s always hard, that first time of the year that he packs his bags and his instruments, after having been by his side for the past 4 months. It’s the longest stretch I can remember, never having to worry about saying good bye, never having to worry if he’s safe, wherever he is. And now we have a daughter, and I think this time it might have been harder on him than me. It’s always hard being the one to leave, at least Uma and I have each other. But we are all best friends, we three, and it doesn’t feel quite the same with just two. Though I don’t mind having the sweet babe all to myself.
And so today, I thought we should embark upon our first outing together – just us two. What an adventure! We went to Target, and then we went to pick up the mail. Plus I have a two door Yaris, and we don’t have a stroller – just the Ergo baby carrier. Despite our obstacles, she was a peach. But when we got home I discovered a poop explosion in her pants! Ack! I rushed her to the bath – also the first bath she’s taken by herself and not in our arms. She was NOT. HAPPY. I don’t think she’s ever been so angry in her life. O! To be 5 weeks old! To have the biggest problem in your life be your disdain for solo bath time! How I love this little nugget and all of her problems. I nursed her back to a happy and calm state at my first chance.
Back to work!
