Chicken Little
Survived the overnight trip with our sanity intact, but suffice it to say that I have learned to question the wisdom of taking another such trip if the person/people doing the hosting have not had kids. By which I mean "starting from catching the baby". There're just some things that people who have not had kids just don't think about. For instance, space/privacy to breastfeed. And the fact that a four-month old, who's had a relatively regular life, suddenly getting shoved into a new situation can't understand anything that's going on and will be uber-cranky because of it. Don't get me wrong--I am not faulting the hospitality of our friend, who was very good and very gracious about the whole screaming-baby thing. There are just some things you can't expect a bachelor to ever have to consider.

Also, came back to find an interview request for one of my oDesk applications. Freelancing might just work out after all. Here's hoping that the guy gets back to me on the blogging thing. Otherwise I might just start up another blog. "Scientifically Raised"--parenting based on the latest studies. That's the current idea, anyway.

Hah that's a blog I'd read, even though I don't have kids yet (and might not for a while, if things continue at the pace I'm at.. :-/) The first born is already somewhat of a lab experiment, so why not? :)

I've decided to start the blog on something else--mostly because I think me blogging about raising kids would just be posting about a) not worrying, and b) not worrying. I've seriously lost all my ability to stress about things after Rijntje was born.
