The Husband has officially gone back to work and while this is a relief financially A has been missing him like crazy.
For the last 9 months A has been tucked into bed by both parents. Daddy has been working at home so whenever she wanted to see him all she had to do was knock on our bedroom door. Now daddy is at the comedy club a lot during the day and unable to tuck her in at night. A misses her daddy and she also wants to work at the club with him. We have tried explaining to her that parents have to work and why 2 year olds can’t have jobs but she isn’t buying it. She’s three and doesn’t care about logic. She only cares about how this is making her feel.
So to make her feel better she is visiting daddy at the club more and going on even more daddy daughter dates. It’s helping but also very exhausting. The comedy club isn’t near our apartment and yesterday I took an hour bus ride during rush hour so that A could see her daddy for an hour. I know I am doing the right thing for my family but sometimes when I am on a crowded NYC bus holding a cranky toddler because no one will give us a seat I think why am I doing this to myself? I quickly remember I am doing this so my family continues to be close but it’s hard to be traveling around town this much.
Hopefully, this will be a brief phase in our lives and eventually we will be able to move closer to the club. In the meantime, I am getting really impressed by what a savvy New Yorker my daughter is coming. She knows the names of all the buses and can tell you which ones to take. Go A!
