Spring

What a beautiful day! Strangely.

Last night was the most sleepless I’ve been since becoming a mom. That is to say, I was so (unintentionally) on alert for every sound in case E was getting sick again (which he was, at around ten to three in the morning, and again at 3:30 but with nothing left in his tummy… poor little sweetie was so miserable and tired), that I did not sleep AT ALL until sometime after 6:40 a.m. Just lay there, thinking about things that will not help me get to sleep – like wondering if we’d have to get to the doctor’s the next day, or stressing about how I have to figure out my schedule for when I go back to work all too soon… And all this, surreally, to the soundtrack in my head of “Under the Sea” from The Little Mermaid (this was not random – we had watched it earlier… great movie!).

The tides seemed to turn at around 7:30 (with a mammoth diaper-change) and then we all got a few hours’ sleep. I was, as you can imagine, a bit slow-moving today.

But then, I guess it was a combination of E’s cheeks being pink again, Typhoo tea, Sean’s pancakes, and truly springy weather – something made me all happy.

I went out to do errands, and it was so mild I was warm enough in lightweight footwear and no coat! And baby was home with Sean and Auntie, which, it must be admitted, is much easier. And I chatted with dear friends and bought salad greens and all was right with the world.

Coming home, I had the car window rolled down and had cranked up Vampire Weekend (the first one) because it was just right for the day, and the young guy standing on the corner with a hockey stick grinned at me. He must like Cape Cod Kwassa Kwassa too. ­čÖé
