32:40 -- Days Off From Parenthood

Greetings from South Carolina!
T has a conference and since we're not far from my parents, Mom came and kidnapped L.E. yesterday so we could have a few baby-free days. This is the first time we've been away from her together. I miss her so much! But T and I have made the most of our baby-moon. As in, we acted as though we never had a child; we got drunk in a strange city but in typical exhausted-new-parent-fashion still passed out at 10.
Traveling here went OK for the most part. L.E. cried the last 10 minutes of both flights. We think she was just over being on a plane where she can't crawl around. She slept for part of the first flight and we barely had time to squeeze in a diaper change during our very brief connection. But I can't complain; she slept really well in the hotel where she shared the bed with us. She's actually quite the bed-hog which I'm convinced she learned fromt the dog.
Mom met us for brunch yesterday and I said an almost-tearful good-bye to L.E. Then T and proceeded to eat-drink-shop the rest of the day. It was really fun; got some cute new clothes and ate a ton. Who knew such a thing existed such as buffalo shrimp? It's GENIUS!
From dinner on, things got a little fuzzy. We ended the night in the bar of a restaurant where my sister's friend is the owner. Dessert was fabulous! I look forward to eating dinner there tonight.
Today, I slept till 9:30. Granted, it's east-coast time but sleeping in felt pretty great. I actually didn't even get out of bed until 11. Why? Because for the first time in over a year, I have zero accountability today. It feels pretty damn good.
But I miss my baby!
