Pretty tights and heels? No. Crazy commute to make me pull my hair out? No. Insane spreadsheets and office gossip? No.
But park dates and coloring books and “DO NOT STICK YOUR FINGER IN THE DOG’S EYE?” You bet!
I’m no less busy these days, but it is a more relaxed pace and I am enjoying being able to dictate my time. I still have lots of responsibilities (hello, dinner and laundry and child-rearing). Some days we are still go-go-go with play dates and dry-cleaning drop-off and a house showing but somedays, we just chill at home in sweatpants.
It has been a lifestyle change but one I am welcoming as an opportunity. I know I will be going back to work full-time soon, so this past week has been about soaking up time with Harrison.
