These are cool but another photographer did a big project on these women/Sun City! Kind of feels like Antony is ripping her off... http://kendrickbrinson.com/sun-city-life-after-life-the-book/
@stuffisthings I'll sign a waiver.
I'd like to be in the control group that was all hamburgers and onion rings. For science, you understand.
@werewolfbarmitzvah Oh hello, sorry to eavesdrop but I am nosy!
I found a spot in an NYC daycare a month before I needed it (oops, left it to the last minute because the thought made me shudder) and I love the daycare and have (ultimately) decided it's great for the baby although the first week was, erm, well, I felt less like that... Baby farming builds strong muscles? I live in a neighborhood that is not Park Slope or the Upper West Side etc. though.
@dk Part of the sleep deprivation comes from baby waking confused and pokey about the fact that my back doesn't have boobs, where are the boobs, why has she retracted the boobs??
(The chin grabbing sounds so cute/terrible though)
@Ophelia Yes! (My heart is warmed by this - who knew the internet was good for more than pictures of Michelle Obama's cute bangs?!).
This post could not have come at a better time since Mr. Baby has a tooth or a tiny devil in his mouth that woke him up many, many times last night, and his dad and I chased our tails in a useless, hypothetical argument and then this morning I took our benevolent dictator to daycare but on the way I crouched down to scoop up my dog's poo at which point the furry beast got scared and tried to run off so I tipped right over on the sidewalk but the baby wasn't crushed and I held on to the poop and I cried, and a questionable but kindly old man helped me up and I gathered my huge bags of baby meshuggas and shuffled off to daycare, sniffling and wreathed in self-pity and boogers. But! I have to say. I kind of miss the baby and can't wait to see him and that cute/stupid little tooth at 6:00.
@Nicole Cliffe Mr. Baby and I had a wildly sleepless night last night thanks to a real shithead of a tooth, and today I almost made out with the daycare lady when I dropped the baby off even if I only use my work-at-home time to read this piece 50 times and nap.
@Ophelia 1. You'll build up a stash of frozen milk by pumping before you go to sleep 2. I plan for relaxation too, it's my own version of a sauna, but don't stay in too long or you'll pass out. By which I mean, I also hated not knowing what would come when my baby did, but figuring it out is less stressful than you think, and you get many, many chances to get it right. You can do it!
@hallucinas "You just need to let him cry himself to sleep" and then, from my open palm comes the slapping heard 'round the world as if it were that easy.
