    All Wrapped Up – April 6

    This week Johnny took a second paternity leave of sorts. It’s given us a chance to take a slight breather and catch up on things, like replacing broken light bulbs and doing paint touch ups around the house. Lots of really fun stuff that you want to use PTO for…

    Last night, Johnny and I ate our first normal dinner in weeks. What defines normal? Well, the food was still warm for both of us, and we actually ate it at the same time, uninterrupted. The trick? We didn’t eat until Baby Girl was in bed, at about 9:30. Okay,…

    I’ll clear up the answer to everyone’s first question real fast: haveyouhadthatbabyyet.com? So that should clear that right up. Otherwise, it’s business as usual. I’m back to work. Joanna’s back to growing a human. And Persie is still trying to find the highest ledge in our house to jump onto.…

    And so begins the three day stretch where everyone and their grandmother says, “I guess I’ll see you in a year” or “This is the last time I’ll chug a Yoo-hoo this year.” So in true bandwagon fashion, this is the last Weekly Wrap-Up you’ll read from us this year.…

    I actually wrote this post on Friday, the day the world was supposed to end. If you’re reading this, I guess the Mayans were wrong. If you’re not reading this, then I wasted a good half hour of my last day on Earth writing something that no one will ever…
