Lighthearted and occasionally sarcastic sharing of my experiences with infertility, baby-raising after infertility and life after losing a parent.

I am so thrilled with our daycare situation right now! What a relief to finally have this working out. It still saddens me to take him to daycare - there are times when I wish I could be with him full-time and still manage to get my work finished. But then I think about daycare, and it makes me smile. Micah has constant stimulation there - he has new toys, teachers who truly seem to LOVE him, activities such as music and Spanish every day, he plays outside on their gym equipment, he goes on walks, he interacts with other children, and he has tons of space to crawl, explore and climb. Overall, I think daycare has been a positive experience for him. He seems to love being there - he is happy and smiling when I drop him off, and he remains happy at the end of the day when I come pick him up.
I'm an attorney and policy consultant, and DH is a consultant to nonprofit organizations. We met at a Superbowl Party in 2005, got engaged the following year, and we were married in November 2006. We had a long and rocky road before finally welcoming our first baby, Micah, into this world on December 14, 2008.
