My new job as a one-armed typist

Alternate title: You would not believe how long it took me to type this shit.

So my new job started today. I am watching my niece, Ava.

Doesn't she look thrilled? In the interest of depicting the true nature of child care, in this photo I have showered but am wearing no makeup and haven't brushed my teeth yet. I went pee, which took about 30 seconds, during which this child fidgeted in her pack n play. Later when she fell asleep I put her down, thinking I needed 5 minutes to write this post. Two minutes in, she awoke and screamed and now I am holding her with one hand and typing with the other.

This definitely explains why new moms never blog. 

See you in 4 months!


  1. By virtue of showering, you are officially better than 99% of new moms! Congrats! ;)

    BTW: You find a baby carrier?

  2. You arent going to blog for the next 4 months?

  3. You've officially turned into me! But you look like you smell better.

  4. V - indeed!

    MM - Thanks! haha... Still no sling but my sister ordered one I'll probably use.

    Faith - I'm joking. :)

    Katie - I don't know how you do it! I'm exhausted.

  5. Just duct tape her to your back. It's what the pioneers did.
