Leaving Home

Thank you so much for all of your kind words and encouragement. I am anxious about the ultrasound on Wednesday morning but I am going to try to stay positive. The few hormones I do have are kicking my ass right now and I am taking the nausea and loss of appetite as a good sign.

Tomorrow M and I are leaving for a wedding. Actually, it's two friends marrying each other. I take full credit for the set-up, by the way. It will be really lovely, but we are leaving Luke at home. My parents are driving in from Austin and will be taking care of Luke for the weekend. I know that he will be fine, but this is going to be so hard. I've never left him for more than a few hours and it is KILLING me already. This is probably good for us, though, and a little extra sleep in te morning will be very welcome.

Even so, it will be hard to leave this face behind:


Please go over and offer Teal congratulations and blessings for a long and happy marriage! I love it when two wonderful people get married. It makes things seem right in the world.

My OB told me, as I wretched over her garbage can for the 4th time that day, during my 1 st pregnancy that nausea was a sign of a healthy pregnancy. I proceeded to vomit for 5 months was a really healthy pregnancy! :)

Leaving them for the first time is hard. But I think you're's worth it and you guys will definitely enjoy it!! And the sleep!

Hope you are feeling ok - I KNOW Luke did great - is there anyone better to leave him with than his grandparents?? Um, no.
How I wish I had that option - I hope you had a GREAT time at the wedding and were able to enjoy yourself with your adorable little man back at home...

That definitely is one adorable little face! I hope your weekend went well and you and the husband could enjoy yourselves just a little bit. I'm guessing Luke was quite excited to see you both when you got home. :)

Hi Kate,

I really enjoy your blog. I watched an author named Christopher Flett on the Today Show, he wrote a book called "What Men Don't Tell Women About Business" and it shares secrets for women working in business. I thought you might enjoy hearing about him. There could be some great content in their for future posts.

Keep up the great work.

Hi Kate,

The author, Christopher Flett, was featured in the NY Times regarding women keeping their careers on track while having their family. His book, "What Men Don't Tell Women About Business" was sold out at the Barnes and Noble I went to so I ordered it at Amazon. I read a lot of blogs and he seems to be popular.

I wish someone would interview him about how to stay OFF the mommy track. Why don't you interview him and post it on your blog? I saw that he was a guest commentator on "the Juggle" (Wall Street Journal). His email listed there was I checked out his website and it looks pretty good.

Anyway, keep up the great topics.
