I remember when those words would conjure up images of wine or margaritas with friends after work. Not so much these days. Now when I think “happy hour” I think about that one precious hour I get with Miles on weekdays.
Normally, this is the evening routine:
5:45 – Pick Miles up from the sitter
6:00 – Walk Barney (our dog) with Miles in tow (usually in the Baby Bjorn)
6:15 – Quality Time with Miles: tummy time, toys, books
7:00 – Miles gets a bath
7:20 – Get in jammies and give Miles his bedtime bottle
8:00 – Miles is asleep (sometimes a little earlier)
So, yeah, about one hour a day, Monday through Friday, is all I get to really enjoy my baby. THEN we bust out the wine and margaritas. Just kidding! Then we do dishes, fill bottles, catch up on a little televison if I’m lucky. Oh, what a crazy life I lead.
