FT working mom

I returned to full-time work this week, after doing the part-time thing for half a year. As if that wasn’t enough of a change, I took my talents to a new employer (and if you’re a sports fan, you’ll get that LBJ reference.)

4 things I learned while traveling sans baby

4 things I learned while traveling sans baby

20140324-232738.jpg

I can still act like a child.

This past weekend included a bunch of firsts: the first time Todd and I went away for a weekend since having the baby, the first time I’d flown since last spring (while pregnant), the first time the baby ever spent more than six hours without at least one parent in his presence, and the first time grandma C got to just be grandmawithout baby’s momma up her rear-end.…
