To Infinity...And Beyond

I have a new job and all our schedules are somewhat screwed up. I wake up at 5:30 and am out of the house by 6:00. I'm in the office by 7:00 and home by 5:00. It's not an exhausting schedule but it's taken getting used to.

Last night it was clear that Owen needed some daddy time. It was also clear that he was exhausted. So I took him to bed early, read a few books then we cuddled. Owen asked to count to 100, which we did. Then he asked what was next. While I refused to count to a billion, I did inform him about the order of numbers but got lost after quadrillions. We made up numbers. Including buttbillions and pffrrrtbillions (note, pfrrtt is intended to sound like a nice, juicy fart). Then we both laughed our assess off, cuddled, and laughed some more until tears ran down our faces.

It was exactly what both of us needed. And it was wonderful.

Ah! 7 to 5. Welcome to my world. The bright side is that you get to have dinner, bath and bedtime with the kids. My hubs would tell you that the downside is that you are also home for dinner, bath and bedtime with the kids. I have worked odd schedules and late nights before and 7 to 5 is by far the least heinous for me.

Sounds a lot like the current budget negotiations in Congress. Except for the "working hard" part and the laughing.
