I hint at our work lives on this blog from time to time, so long-time readers may recall that for years Ryan and I worked for the same company (and carpooled to work!). He changed jobs a few months ago and while I really miss being chauffeured to and from work each day, this job is a much better fit for him and it's exciting to see him doing something he loves so much. We're no longer coming and going at the same time and there are times that he has a later meeting and doesn't make it home for that crucial "mom's trying to get dinner on the table and Brecken needs to be occupied" period. As long as Brecken isn't hungry or tired this is no big deal, she's more than happy to sit at my feet and play (she prefers tupperware and spice bottles over actual toys, go figure). There are days, however, when she just wants to be held and because I'm a sucker for baby cuddles, especially after a long day at work, I'm more than happy to acquiesce.
