Pretending to be normal!?

Since I've known Alex, he's always worked some pretty crazy hours. Such is the life of a broadcaster. But really, with the exception of a four or five month stint of 10:00 am - 6:00 pm, oh, five years ago, and two months during the Olympics of 7:00 am - 2:00 pm, it's pretty much been hours when those of us who like to sleep, are asleep.

Until now. Yesterday was day one of a new routine for all three of us. Alex starts a bit later in the day than most people, so he ends a bit later, but he's home now before J goes to bed. It means that I have to go to work an hour earlier to pick her up on time, but it's all good. She's a bit confused and still not sure why I'm leaving without her, but it's going to be worth. It is already worth it. Last night Alex came home and she and her Pat the Bunny book climbed into his lap for some before bed story time. Every couple of pages (they had to read the book a few times...you know how toddlers are) she'd stop and give him a big sideways hug.

I'm not the only one who's over the moon that Alex is at home in the evenings! It may take a few weeks to get the routines sorted out, but it's all good!
