I can't run from it any more: I'm pissed off. I'm looking for fights. I'm seeking strife in every corner, and God help me, I'm finding it.

Just wrote this to Marcus

We were going to meet in Sac for lunch and I realized after today's trip to Sausalito that the big adventures, while awesome, tend to land us in two-hour-to-fucking-bedtime land for Baz. Asking to reschedule (and his entirely gracious reply) spurred my response:

Thanks for being cool with it. I try not to be one of these pain-in-the-ass mothers who I know (“Austin’s nap schedule is changing from 12:00 to 12:02, so can we play our coffee date by ear and I’ll let you know five minutes before we’re prepared to leave the house?”) who expect everyone to dance around their saggy asses. Sometimes I think I bend over backwards to prove that I’m still cool and flexible and yada-yada, and then I realize that all I have to do is be me and it’ll maybe work.

I think it's time we talked about Other Parents, or as I shall further refer to them, OP. In a word, OP suck. OP talk incessantly and in detail about the type of minutiae that makes me want to find the nearest and lowest tree branch from which to hang myself. OP say things like "we bought a potty last weekend." OP know what a MamaRoo is. They know that it's really spelled mamaRoo. I had to Google to look that up, for the record, if you really want to know.

Adam and I are cool. We smoke on the back deck. We curse in front of Baz. And every so often, we Do It. Tonight we stuck Baz in his new highchair (we bought a highchair) and chopped vegetables with abandon. Damn, we rule.

Six months

On Sept. 6, 2015, I gave birth to one of the finest people I have ever known. I adore Baz more than I can say and admire him vastly. Being his mom has made me a better, happier and more gracious person. Thank you, baby. Thank you for being you.
