In the World

Today I’m out in the world, working at my client’s office. Ian is home with Asher. It’s only the second day I’ve been apart from Asher to go to work (yesterday was the first). This is possible thanks to Ian having two days off this week at just the perfect time.

Today I’m able to work with gusto, to concentrate for more than 10 minutes at a time! It’s refreshing and enjoyable, but I admit to missing Asher and worrying a little—Not that Ian can’t handle it. He can. But because Asher is so young, he doesn’t know that I’ll be gone only a few hours. When he wants me and I’m not there, he becomes very, very sad.

I work away from home only three to five days per month. When I do, I take the baby with me. It’s ideal! Getting out of my home office once in a while c’est tres bon!

Today is especially nice. It’s quiet; I can hear myself think. I talk to grown-ups. I am wearing jewelery, which I usually can’t do with the baby. I can chat by the water cooler and participate in office birthday celebrations.

But at the end of the day, like now at 4:30 p.m., I’m missing my boys and looking forward to going home to see their smiling faces. T.G.I.F.
