Tiffany is back at work as of today, which means that Olivia is in day care. Only part time, mind you, as Tiffany is working a half schedule through the end of the year, but today is the first day.
I will be the primary dropoff person. Tiffany catches a vanpool ride to work which leaves at 6:45, and the doors at the Esperanza infant house don't open until 6:30, so the margin is too close for her to take Olivia there. This means a change in my work schedule, since I'm used to being at my desk by 6:30, but not that big a change. I may have to insist on taking the Subaru when I drop Olivia off because I can already tell that getting her into and out of the baby seat in the back of our Saturn coupe is going to be a major pain in the rear.
So it's going to be a transition period for all of us. We're easing into it this week - I'm taking Tuesday and Thursday afternoons off in order to spring Olivia from day care early, and Tiffany is off on Wednesday - but the opening chapter of Olivia's life is now complete. Ready or not, the next phase is here.Posted by Charles Kuffner on September 07, 2004 to See, I do have a life! | TrackBack
