We had 12 hours of crisis last week when we realized after dinner that LB's very important blanket named "Bitty" was missing. B spent some time cruising the mean streets between our house and daycare thinking that perhaps bitty had been dropped (passive voice intentional) on our morning walk. No Bitty. LB went to sleep whimpering "Bitty got a little bit lost. Bitty got a little bit lost." And rejecting all other blankets, after rubbing them between her little fingers, and finding them wanting. She woke up crying at least three times during the night.
B and I were wrung out. I may have started crying once. It was the worst thing since the NICU and the time after the NICU when I dropped LB on her head.
All three of us walked to daycare the next morning and the adults kept our eyes peeled for Bitty. No Bitty. I was imagine years of interupted sleep. We walked into daycare and there was Bitty on the front desk! Then LB remembered (confabulated) that her mischievous friend Z. had removed Bitty from our stroller, and Bitty had gotten a little bit lost. Perhaps, but we are just glad to have bitty.
Potty training continues to the sounds of "I need a yummy bear! I neeeed a yuuuummmy bear!"
I managed to get through my first day of work with no puking, cursing, or crying, so I'll call that a win. I ordered a couple dresses from Land's End, before they told me the dress code is "very casual." The dresses here and here are flattering and nice fabric. I was afraid they would be too low cut, but they're fine. And, for anyone who's nursing and looking for professional-type nursing clothes, these dresses would be perfect. They are faux wrap style with a lot of give, and they seem a lot less expensive than dresses marketed as nursing dresses. This is my first and last fashion post.
