Which right now consists of planning a certain event for a certain someone who is celebrating something special in 17 days. This was part of the planning, sort of.
We’ve also gotten a glimpse of The Dream this past week. This Dream is for us both to be at home during the day, raising the kid(s), working on our projects, and generally making our own rules as much as possible. Micah has been doing a project from home which has made the trade-off between work and class so much easier. I imagine that going back to an office job will be hard, for me and Simon if not for Micah. I love having somebody else here to play with Simon while I do important things like update our blog and procrastinate doing homework. Simon loves it, too. I’m not as good at teaching him to break dance as Micah.
Other items of business:
- Simon’s rat tail has gained sufficient length that Micah thinks it needs to be cut. He has not yet scheduled an appointment with the resident barber, however.
- I got all crafty last Friday and made a baby carrier (like the Beco we have) for a little girl in our branch to carry her “babies” Molly and Ray-Ray (short for Rachel) around in. Sorry, we forgot to take pictures, but just know that you would be very impressed.
- We went on a date (!) without Simon (!!) on Friday. The babysitter said that Simon behaved admirably. He may be conquering the separation-anxiety beast. I may be conquering the beast also.
- Simon has learned to crawl off the couch head-first without becoming paralyzed. But the bed still poses a major threat.
Hmmm . . . that’s all for now.
