I Was Childless Yesterday

Jay had the day off of work yesterday. (It was the observed day for Veteran's Day) He decided that he wanted to go to his tailor with his friend to get some pants taken in and talk to him about making a custom suit. Our tailor (and his wife) are originally from Guatemala. Jay wanted to take Alex in as we've been talking to them about our adoption.

So, Jay packed Alex up and took him! I had the whole house to myself for about 3 hours. I guess they went to the tailor, to visit our friend's office, to lunch and then to Kroger. I guess Alex did wonderful.

It was hard for me to not worry........Jay had never put him in the car before, never had to haul him around, never had to figure out how to put the carrier on the shopping cart. Now, my husband is a very smart man. He has his Master's degree - he graduated from college with honors - he reads really boring history and political books. Why did I not think he could handle a 6 month old???? :) He told me not to worry.

I guess they had a great time. I got to take a long shower and a nap. It was nice.

"We" enjoy the posts about Jay a great deal.

If you have any video of Jay eating rice cereal I know that would be a big hit!
