As you may have guessed from my lack of posting lately, I've gone back to work! Just part-time, an average of 20 hours a week (and it will be even less when Mike starts another job on November 1st), but I feel overwhelmed just the same. I have no idea how moms who work full-time do it.
Evan is 14 1/2 weeks old now, and so much fun! Yesterday was a big day for him. We had his first visit with a physical therapist for torticollis (basically, his head is tilted to one side because of the position he was in inside of me, and we need to do lots of stretching to make sure he'll have full range of motion, plus, you know, not look off-kilter), and he discovered his feet, rolled front to back (twice!) and back to front (once). I'm so glad I wasn't at work when all of that happened!
I don't have the energy to compose a book review, but a book I recently enjoyed was Deb Caletti's The Six Rules of Maybe. She writes thoughtful fiction for teen girls; I'd compare her to Sarah Dessen. You grown-ups who don't read YA fiction are totally missing out!
That's all for now. I salute all of you working moms out there...and if you have any advice on how to keep up with the laundry, let me know! The smallest member of our family currently produces the most.
