I woke up this morning with a plan steeped in responsibility and practicality. This is my last Monday as a full-time mom. One week from today I head back to the office and I'm pretty bummed about it. It isn't that I don't like my job or my boss or my colleagues... I do, I do, I do. In fact, I feel very, very lucky to be with the company and group that I'm with. But for the past 12 weeks I've had a better job and I'll miss it more than I can imagine or face up to right now.
That being said, I thought today might be a good day to start slipping into some sort of routine. To get up at a given hour, try to eat on some sort of schedule, nap at certain times, etc, etc. I thought if we did this for a week leading up to my leaving Radar full time, it might make the transition a little easier.
But then I thought - there's always tomorrow for that practical crap... It's a beautiful day and this is my last Monday home with Radar, so let's have some fun! Let's get some sand in between our toes!
Don't worry - I didn't have Radar basking in the sun all day. This is the 6pm setting sun and Radar was only out of the shade long enough to shoot a few pictures before I covered him all up again. He may not be able to quite build sand castles yet, but he did seem pretty interested in the towel and the whole beach scene. And I included that last shot just so you pug people wouldn't think that Fanny was left behind!
Lots of love,
Titi and Radar
