i am impressed at times how much my style is NOT cramped by having a tiny 7-week-old shadow. josh is off this weekend, and it sort of feels just like the old days. i realize this is because my previous lifestyle just wasn’t all that glamorous or adventurous!
we can still walk to the farmer’s market, where i can still eat delicious daisy cakes scones.
we can still go out to brunch.
we can still watch modern family on the couch, although admittedly it’s a little different to do so while breastfeeding. [SO excited for next season with the recent plot twist!]
i can’t really sleep in — but let’s face it, i didn’t really do that before, either.
and short runs are starting to be almost as satisfying as long ones.
some things are harder — going out to dinner, grocery shopping, and the like. but i will learn to make things work — and if not, we’ll cultivate some new traditions. [take out. movies on demand. good old fashioned snuggle time].
i do have to admit i miss wine* and nice dinners out a little. which is why it’s very exciting that tonight is DATE NIGHT! perhaps i should feel guilty about leaving annabel with my sister for a couple of hours, but the truth is that i don’t. couples time is so important and i really want to
have [ <– no, that’s not strong enough] enforce — a monthly date night.
