And, I'm out!

Well, it's back to my regular job today. Some closing thoughts:

- Hollis squawked and giggled when he saw Jessica last night. No pouting, no fear, no "my mom went to SF and all I got was this lousy onesie" or anything. He was just glad to see her again.

- I closed out my Mr. Mom tenure by making dinner for Jessica and the grandparents (the local ones). Target finish time for the pot roast was 7pm. We were eating by 9:15pm.

- I need to work on efficiency in the kitchen, obviously. :)

- Hollis is the best baby ever, and made the week really easy on me.

- We went to the park yesterday so Hollis could pick up rocks and get dirty. He ended up with a stalker in the form of a 5-6 year-old boy who just wanted to hang out wherever Hollis was hanging out. His mom eventually had to tell him, "He's little! Give him some space!"

- I feel like our little nukular family's horizons have opened up, with both parents willing and able to baby wrangle on their own for days (or even weeks, if need be).

- The office is a pretty sterile place, without the constant noises that Hollis makes. Maybe I should install a couple of webcams around the house...

Anyway, until next time, so long and thanks for all the cheerios!


  1. Thanks for keeping us entertained in Jessica's absence!

  2. Wish I could've tuned in in-the-moment.

    The only thing that would've made your tenure better is a quickie pic of you holding Hollis' bare butt up to a hand dryer in a public restroom a la the O.G. Mr Mom, Michael Keaton.
