The Baby

Last night I got a hint of what parenthood is like. While Eli is away, I've been taking care of Miss Cleopatra Jones. Babysitting Cleo has literally been baby-sitting. Since she misses her mamma so much, she has been asking for double the attention. Cleo has been following me around the house like a shadow and is in constant need of body contact. At night, the baby wants to cuddle and if, God forbid, I move, she gets rowdy until she falls asleep again. Today, I feel like I haven't slept in ages. This is probably a hint of what parenthood is like. I love Cleopatra unconditionally but I also love sleep, this is why I will probably hold off on having any children as long as possible.

Dear Irina,
Thank you so much for taking care of her highness, the boss, the queen, the empress...the baby kitty.

She is so thankful to you.
And so do I.
