The online forum for my local mothers’ group has a feature in which members are invited to share their day in photos. My day is pretty Joe-heavy, so here it is for all his fans …
Like most days, my Tuesday began around 6:30 or 7 with this (I hope he will always wake up this happy):
After a good snuggle, he took to his throne to await breakfast (that’s a Napoleon Dynamite doll he’s whipping around there):
Posing with Dada, who’s about to leave for the day:
A little time to play and then … dressed for school!
Here comes the bus to take him away …
Now my commute down the hall for work …
Here’s an arty shot of what I’m working on to make it seem more interesting:
I’m also printing address labels so we can finally send these.
(I knew I wouldn’t make a Christmas deadline, so we did New Year’s cards instead. Probably should have done Valentine’s cards. Don’t you judge me.)
And now, an additional way to procrastinate …
Noon. Lunch break! (PB&J, Diet Coke and a good magazine)
Time to get Joe from school …
Off to therapy!
With his speech therapist at 2 p.m. …
And his physical therapist at 3 p.m. …
Back home to play (he loves that mirror — what an ego!)
Dada comes home and feeds Joe (I neglected to photograph that part, just imagine it).
I have a meeting tonight, so I’m going to Panera for a solo dinner while I read my notes:
To City Hall for a Citizen Planning Committee meeting:
Back home, where Patrick is cuddled up to my sister-wife:
Ooh, a new Parenthood is on!
A quick check of the little dude:
And lights out, a little later than I meant to.
