On Leaving The House


I took Baby H out to the school today so my colleagues could meet him in person. It’s a trip I have been planning to make for a few weeks now but planning and doing are often not the same thing.

Leaving the house has just felt like a chore.

In the past seven weeks I’ve left the house with the baby a mere handful of times. Staying home is infinitely easier. Baby H is nursing every few hours and while I certainly will nurse outside of the home, it is more comfortable to do it in my living room than in the public arena. That leaves very small pockets of time for us to be out and about without having to stop and feed him.

Then there is getting out of the house with an infant AND a four year old. Our first trip to the grocery story as a family of four felt like a circus event.

Like I said, easier to just stay home.
