I’ve talked about this before: The Quiet. You know. The point where the vacation/holiday is over and everyone goes home. You take down the decorations. Dad goes back to work. It is final. No more birthday/holiday season.
Reality sets in that it is just me and A (*). All day. No distractions. No slipping away to visit gossip websites or play my Ipad games (anyone obsessed with gems, matching or scramble???) while B takes over for awhile. No more having B take the monitor in the middle of the night or sleeping in.
I’m not sure why I’m afraid of being the sole entertainer. I have taken care of A for every day of his life so far. I guess it was just nice having some help.
So yesterday, my first day back on duty, was a lonely day. Don’t get me wrong, I had my sidekick to keep me company, but there is something to say for the tag team parenting me and B had perfected these past 10 days.
I’m excited about what 2013 will bring. We have tons of fun travel planned. I may dabble a bit in some work from home stuff. It will be A’s first birthday in a few weeks. So much to look forward.
But that’s later. Yesterday? Yesterday was just a blue day. Anyone else have the post vacation blues?
(*) So instead of referring to Big Kat and Little Kat I thought it would be less confusing if I just did first initials. Here on out BK is B and LK is A.
