Academia, parenthood, living in a bankrupt city, and what I read in the process.

second babies

Originally uploaded by Mantooth.
It's surprising just how little panic there has been with this second boy compared to the first. We don't get all agitated about every sound he makes. This makes our lives easier (as does the fact that he sleeps like a dream--5 hours at a stretch! we have to wake him to feed him!), but at the same time it's a little sad. His brother, though, makes up for everything, and is absolutely in love with the baby.

    how old is boy 1 again?

    i have such strong memories of when my little brother was born. i was about 5; i don't think i've ever been so excited since.

    i remember staring out the window trying to contain my excitement that there was another person in the house who would have a whole 'nother interior life as rich and exciting and singular as mine (why my parents didn't count i don't know) . . . and now i remember that feeling, but i obviously have forgotten and replaced all the words i used to think and feel it . . .

    best wishes to the whole family.
