One of the advantages of the night-heavy schedule is that I do get to spend a lot of time with my wonderful daughter...and don't need a sitter very much. We get to hang out, read, play, occasionally go to our predominantly deserted mall so she can run around untethered. It's cool...I get to be a productive member of society at my job and be with the coolest person ever.
As I'm back in the day shift for the Fall, though, we're gonna have to arrange two full days of day care for her. Yes, it will be more of an expense. I'm gonna miss her tremendously, though. Gotta make the most of the summer. Parks, here we come! That is, if the weather ever stabilizes.
