Tiny Happy Tuesday: 16

What is Tiny Happy Tuesday?

Tiny Happy Tuesday is a prompt to stop, drop, and think of all the good stuff (no matter how minuscule) that adds up to one wonderful life. 

  • Shawn and I went to a wedding. We dressed up and drank cocktails and talked to adults and didn't worry about kids or babies. We had a ton of fun and Poppy and Grady had a ton of fun hanging out with my parents. It was the longest I've been away from the kids since Poppy was born and it was glorious.
  • Following the trend of amazing grandparents stepping up to look after my babies, last week Shawn's dad watched the kids so I could go see him perform. He started playing with a new band a few months ago and they've gained a bunch of momentum in a brief period of time. It was a lot of fun to go out and watch them play, even if I drove straight to the bar and arrived ten minutes before they hit the stage, and left as soon as their set finished so I could make it home to the tiny, furious humans.
  • Today is my first full day back in the office and Poppy's first full day of daycare. I have some complicated feelings about all this but I'm trying to focus on the good. I genuinely like my job and the people I work with so even though leaving my baby is going to be extremely difficult, I'm not leaving her to go somewhere I hate. Also? Thanks to the land of amazing mat leave, I'm not leaving a tiny baby. I'm leaving a 13-month-old. We can do this. (Deep breaths.)
