Jen has now started her maternity leave, save for a few things she’s going to wrap up from home next week.
I’m now also “on alert”, waiting for the call that could come at any time. This phone will be tethered to me at all times. This includes any run, ride, or anything else.
It’s funny, I feel like I’m already adapting to life with a child… can’t go anywhere too far, can’t go anywhere too long. But what I am learning, is that Jen isn’t imposing anything; she’s leaving things entirely up to me and is fine with whatever I want to do. Me: ”Honey, can I go for a ride tomorrow?”, her: ”Doesn’t matter to me, you just need to be reachable and be able to get home in a reasonable amount of time”.
I’m feeling reassured that she’s going force me to keep being me.
