a livable routine.

Monday, Claire visited the childcare room at the gym for the first time. Walking up to the doors, I felt a tiny lump in my throat and didn't know if I was going to be able to leave her. I didn't anticipate being one of those mothers. But, the childcare workers were great, and Claire nestled into an exersaucer, while I ran my little heart out. The best part of the whole gym experience was that I got to take a long shower without a tiny visitor. Afterwards, Claire had a long nap. Long nap= happy girl. Happy girl= happy mama. We celebrated our perfect day with a trip to the nearby swings.
