anyway, b and i went and saw the adjustment bureau after my run. loved the movie! man, following movies like the social network and this one, i really feel like i need to join a book club (movie club?) to discuss all the themes and social commentary featured in recent films. anyone care to join?
but going to the movie was monumental because it meant we got a babysitter for the little monkey. a REAL babysitter! one who was not related to him and / or did not come over and "babysit" [aka watch tv] while he was asleep in his room! what a novel idea.
i've come to the conclusion recently that jack needs to learn i will go away and come back, and i need to learn that he will be okay while i am gone. it's weird to think that in order for him to grow and develop, i actually have to be AWAY from him for short stretches of time. i was a little paranoid the whole time we were gone today, imagining the most horrible worst-case-scenarios, but he was with an amazing friend who i completely trust and guess what? everything was fine! of course it was. geez lyndsey, chill out.
and in other firsts news, jack can feed himself little finger foods and it is the cuuuutest thing ever. i think it's so fascinating to watch his little hands at work and see him figure out how to do things.
those target-brand puffs are challenging little buggers but mr. jack has conquered them:
hope you're having a wonderful weekend of first-somethings too :)
