05:22:12 [139/365] - day off... (well...sort of)

FB and I take alternate days for our Roo care... so few days a week, I shut down much of my internet connection and spend all day with her till she goes to bed. I resume my work around 8pm after dinner and work until I finish packing following day's shipment.

Sometimes it requires little bit of juggling but it's an arrangement that works for now.

Today was one of those days. We woke up at 5:45am (yep... that early... not voluntary for all of us involved), and Roo and I spent all day together till 8pm when she went to bed. Between watering the garden while Roo playing in her kiddy pool, grocery shopping, afternoon nap, playground date, meal prepping..., the day seems to flow with its own rhythm.

I love it when I stumble upon a moment that feels "just right" not to be connected... It usually happens when she is busy doing what she is doing... and I am watching her but the situation is not requiring me to be on the "alert" mode. Time seems to freeze for a few seconds in these moments and I feel like we are living somewhere totally different in a different era... like somewhere in Europe. Then I take a mental note how life would had been before we got email, twitter, facebook...

p.s. we do have usual 2 years old meltdowns especially towards the end of the night around 7pm... which usually only ends with me holding her on the couch.

And moms who are out there who spend 7 days/week... 24/7 with little ones (including my mom 30 years ago)... you are truly amazing.
