Oh yes, it's all coming back to me. We have a blog. I keep forgetting about this.
Today something crazy happened. Kenny went to work--at like an office, wearing business casual and sitting in cubicle all day. He interviewed for a contracting position on Monday. Later that day we met with a potential child care provider. The next day they offered him the gig, and today we all had a really weird day.
Kenny dropped Eli and me off at the sitter's house and I dropped Eli off (then proceeded to spend an hour and 40 minutes in the car...oops). He saw that I was leaving and began screaming and crying--which, while not terribly uncommon--felt way worse since I was leaving him with basically a stranger rather than his father or grandparent. Intellectually, I know this is good for all of us. Emotionally I am still catching up, which surprises me. I didn't expect to feel this way.
Eli did apparently stop crying after a couple of minutes, so that is good news. His sitter (not even sure that is the right word) seems really great and did a million activities with him.
Starting tomorrow, Kenny will get up at the crack of dawn, walk the dogs and then drive an hour to work. I will somehow get Eli fed and dressed, myself dressed, the dogs mini-walked, Eli and me on the train and to the sitter, then myself back on the train and to work. I'm not really sure how that all will happen.
