Duty calls. I am in London for work so may not be able to post today (or maybe even tomorrow). Work, work, work!
I’m missing my two boys like crazy, though I know that Benjamin will have an awesome time hanging with Owen solo for a few days. He is such a sweet Dad. It’s so easy to fall into a pattern where one parent does certain things, and, for better or for worse, that means the other parent misses out. I bet he is enjoying bathtime and those sweet bedtime cuddles (which I usually handle). He may NOT be enjoying the food prep for daycare days (which I also usually take care of) or the morning wakeup routine (where Owen wakes up happy and alert and then cries and protests the 1st diaper change, even though we do it the same way every day!), but they are part of that adorable, squeezable, kissable, hilarious little package.
I’m spending 2 days in a hotel running a training, so it’s not like I’m gallavanting around town without a care in the world. Still, flying business class (with free champagne!) felt like a much-needed vacation day, and I am very much looking forward to getting two “nights” tomorrow since I’m leaving in the early evening, London time.
Although it’s only 2:40pm at home, it’s 7:40pm here, and my last session just finished, which means I’m off to wander the lovely streets and find some food for dinner. I DO miss putting Owen to bed at night and seeing his smiley little face after a wonderful day at daycare, but I must say, being alone feels pretty darn good once in awhile!
