Most afternoons, my mom takes Edith for a couple of hours and I can do what I want. Today, what I most wanted to do was to make myself a cheese plate and a glass of wine and go sit in my bed surrounded by baby toys and picture books and with the smell of an overfull diaper pail in the air and put my earbuds in so I couldn’t hear Edith hollering in the living room, and watch the Season 2 premiere of Ted Lasso on my 11″ MacBook Air at 2 pm.

It’s funny to think that six months ago, I could spend every single evening relaxing in this way, for hours if I chose. It felt so much less special, though!
