1. I got both kids out of the house on my own yesterday. What with one thing and another, this was actually the first time I've had to take them both somewhere without help. We went to noon Mass at our parish, and we were ON TIME, no less!
2. For the first time since Blaise was born, I got dinner completely prepared before Bryan was home from work yesterday. Since I almost always end up doing most (or all) of the dinner prep after he is home to help out, managing it without him is quite an achievement.
3. The other evening, I managed to nurse Blaise in the sling while walking around the grocery store. When Camilla was a baby I could nurse her in the sling at home, but lacked the finesse to be discreet enough that I felt comfortable doing it in public. I never even tried it with her. But this time around I decided that I would be bold and just do it, so I brought the sling along on an outing when I knew Blaise would need to nurse, at a place where there are no good alternative places to nurse. (Unless you count nursing standing up in a bathroom stall to be a good alternative, which I certainly do not.) When the baby started making hungry grunting noises, I slid him into the sling, he latched on like the champion he is, and we were doing it! I kept my coat on over the whole deal for extra privacy, but really I'd be surprised if one out of ten people who saw us had a clue what was going on.
