It’s tough heading to work these days.
I don’t exactly enjoy leaving Liam and Molly in the morning–even if the little guy is fussy. This morning I helped SulliMom give Liam a quick-wash in the funny plastic bathing bowl. He is not a big fan of that.
I do feel quite fortunate that I can walk home at lunch, be home in five minutes and meet them somewhere in the neighborhood at pretty much any point in the day. There is a confidence and comfortable feeling inside me because of the proximity of our place to work.
Another positive is having some of our favorite former UIC student-athletes around the neighborhood to pester us. I use pester as a term of endearment, because we love it. It’s always fun to catch up with any of our kids at UIC. Two of our former soccer players, Ian Sarachan (check the link for a cool project Ian coordinates) and Baggio Husidic, along with Baggio’s better half Fay, stopped by to visit with us–well, mostly Molly and Liam–and drop off some pretty cool gifts. Check the photos. A little background–Baggio has been referenced on the blog before; he is playing a big role for the 2010 Chicago Fire. Ian recently returned from California where he has been living with his family. His father, Dave, is associate head coach for the L.A. Galaxy, thus the Galaxy gear. We’re spoiled by the Sarachan family.
Dad’s Feel Postpartum Depression, Too? – Apparently, according to recent findings. I haven’t felt any yet, but it is a serious issue. I’m glad we have a dense supporting cast to help us if we need it.
