No thank you, on the baby bit.

It's been a while since I last posted, in part because I haven't fully recovered from having a 7-month-old Child to stay for four days.

OH. MY. GOD.

Although my parents have seemingly a hundred thousand children, it's been a while since I was up close and personal with a baby. Just long enough, apparently, that I had forgotten what all was involved, and two days before the Child arrived had messaged the DNB, "Am thinking babies are not so awful after all."

Misconception corrected. This Child needed constant tending-to! Someone had to stand by to be sure he wouldn't fall off the couch or eat a stray choking hazard! He needed food, then changing, then sleep in a never-ending cycle!

It was exhausting. And I wasn't even the one taking care of him.
