I love garage sales! Emma and I hit the jackpot yesterday. We got her a ton of clothes, most of which are from Gymboree, and some of which still even had the tags on. Have I mentioned that I love garage sales?
Last night Emma was alseep by 8:00, which was great, until she started waking up every 15 minutes. I got tired of nursing her back to sleep, so around 10:30 I just let her get up. The three of us ended up staying up until 4:00 a.m.! We were having such a good time together that I never stopped to think, "Why in the heck are we still bloody awake at this hour?"
Tonight Steve and I are going to a some benefit dinner with some of his co-workers. It was pretty last minute, so the only person we could find to watch Emma is Steve's cousin. He is really nice and Emma likes playing with him, but I'm still pretty nervous about it. He's like a young bachelor-type guy and I'm worried that, while he may have good intentions, he just might not posess the nurturing qualities needed to soothe Emma if she starts to miss me. We are also going to a dinner Tuesday (my mom will be here to watch her then) and I'm feeling pretty darn guilty about leaving Emma twice in one week. I hope she doesn't feel abandoned.
