I smirked. “It is called Easter you non-practicing Protestant idiot.”
Although, to be fair, I can understand that he forgot about Easter, what with the Dude and all. Also, when you look out your window and see this, you might not be in the mood.
Today is also special because the Dude is one month old today. It has been a LONG month. Thankfully the German has had two weeks off from school. He has taken some of the “night shifts” so that I can actually get some sleep.
Adapting to life with a baby is hard. It has been harder than I imagined. I went from being a go-go-go business woman to a professional diaper changer. It is hard being in the house all day with the baby. I have started talking to myself. Next week I actually have to start teaching again. Don’t worry; it is only 3 classes a week.
Honestly, there are moments when I wonder if having a child was a good decision. For example last night at 4am when the Dude fell asleep while eating and then finally woke up and pooped and peed all over me and his changing table and all I wanted to do was go back to sleep. Yeah, kids are not always fun. But then when he was finally clean and full and he laughed and cooed at me and EVENTUALLY went back to sleep. How can I stay mad at such cuteness?
PS I do not want to imply that Protestants are idiots, just the German, who by the way is not happy that I shared this story, but I don’t get out much these days, so it is the only thing I have to write about . . . Also, I thought it was funny . . . And in his defense, the German is a smart guy I think the Jehovah Witnesses threw him for a loop . . . But it was still funny.
