My husband is back at work and as a rule if he’s gone longer than two weeks the whole family packs up and goes along with him. So that definitely went into play when we found out he was doing two back to back films on the west coast. A total of two months away from our beloved East coast. But what’s not to like about an adventure in California? We gladly packed our bags and were very excited about the prospect to be on the west coast for the summer. While Bruce is working away the girls and I are playing! Luckily he gets to join us for some fun too, but only on the weekends.
As a second time mom I’m a much more relaxed version of what I was the first time round. I wish I had told my first-time-mom “self” to ignore everyone’s unsolicited advice, with all their opinions and supposed sincere guidance of what my child should and shouldn’t be doing at certain stages of her development. All that chatter served no purpose but to make me second-guess myself at every turn and cause me undue insecurities.
