Last week, I was away for four days on a business trip to Hong Kong. I’ve gone away before, but as I’ve been a parent for over a year now, some things have changed. I’ve found I’ve become a lot more forgiving with babies on the plane probably because I’m able to sympathize much more…it’ll only be a few months before that’s potentially us!
I’ve become one of those parents that’ll sit on the plane and look at pictures of you because I miss you so much. As a result, I’ve tried to minimize the amount of travel I have to do – it used to be much more fun and exciting, but now I always prefer a front-row seat to the Milo show. Maybe it’s me missing you or me just being a parent, but I see or notice babies everywhere now.
There are some things that don’t change. For example, your mom and I still write emails to each other almost everyday while I’m away. We probably don’t have to only because we also FaceTime each other once and usually take that opportunity to talk about everything that has happened. That we do reminds me of how we use to write letters to each other. I still pop a lot of pills (either Benadryl, Advil PM, or melatonin) to go to sleep and stay asleep. And as before, I enjoy the luxury of peeing without having to put the seat back down.
