Working parents

Today was our first day merging our normal life with our life as parents. Dave spoiled me rotten last night and let me sleep through the night. It was awesome!

Dave grabbed a coffee and headed into the office this morning. I had a document to finish from home and multiple meetings. We both had really productive days, and were happy to get back to work!

Tess is fabulous. We got time together today, even though she slept for most of it. She got a night with daddy while mommy went out for a night at our favorite corner joint with her female other half. You know it’s a good night when the waiter says, “you’ve been here a long time!” Catching up on 80 day takes a while, and we’re only
getting started.

Dave came home, got ten minutes with me, and then was left holding his beloved kid. She got a bath, bottles and snuggles! They both looked pretty happy when I got home. 🙂

For a day I’ve been worrying about, it was pretty sweet. Leaving Tess to work is hard. She doesn’t seem to mind, but I think it will take us a while to adjust. Still, the simplicity of “take care of baby and work” after months of “take care of baby, commute, live somewhere else, do lots of legal paperwork, actual do work and don’t go home for months”seems dreamy. I’ll let you know what we feel like by the end of the week!
