Quick Slide Through Atlanta

Alden’s language has exploded. It makes me happy, as a parent who likes to see her child knocking down new skills. But spend 10 minutes with him and he’ll tell you all my secrets. Current favorites are: Where keys? Where purse? Mommy tired.

Last night we met a dog and Alden put out his hand and said: Nice to meet you.
Or, rather: Ice a meet chu. Meet chu. Meet chu.
He’s just like Macy Gray.

Things are still crazy, but not unpleasant. Little guy #2 makes his presence know regularly now, and has found that same unguarded internal gate that lets him shove his feet up under my ribs in the spot that Alden favored. 12 weeks to go before I can get my revenge in person. I’m loving my new OB’s practice because their answer to almost every question I ask about their delivery practice is: You should absolutely do it any way you want to do it. We’re up for whatever.
I find, for us, small practices are the way to go. I’m sure there are fabulous groups, I’m sure there are rotten small practices. But, in general, we’ve always been happier with little indies.

I’ve buried the headline, though. My schedule at work was favorable, so we raced down to Atlanta so I could attend the international design show at the Gift Mart today and tomorrow. I hit it hard today and still didn’t even put a real dent in. Still, it’s tons of fun. I’m never buying anything boring again. Saturday morning we’re going to take Alden to the Children’s Museum. If any of my Atlanta friends would like to join, please speak up. I’d love to see you!

    P will be back in town and I can’t remember if he had plans for him and the kids Saturday or not. If not, I’d love to see you. Email me your cell number.

  3. I put my hands against the Conant Center from the outside picnic grounds last night, and felt Damon’s presence as he witnessed the bloodbath.
    Tell him it was nice to sense his aura, and perhaps next time I’ll catch a glimpse of his hair as he goes by in a fast-moving car.
