Yes, I can do this.

I went on my first solo outing with Liam and River today. I figured I had put it off long enough.

We went on a walk down the hill and around the corner to the cafe downtown. Liam rode in the stroller; River in the mei tai wrap.

Liam had a cookie. I sipped a decaf Americano (I have discovered that River is a much happier baby if I keep the caffeine out of both of our systems...ditto for broccoli, too).

We sat in the chairs outside, watching the cars drive by. Liam gave a running commentary on the comings and goings of downtown Siloam:

Big truck
Whoa, BIG truck

Then he was back in the stroller, and we headed home.

Sure, it was a small trip, but it was still a trip.

I think I just might be able to handle the two of them by myself.


  1. good for you! it gets easier...and harder...and easier:)

  2. Are you serious?? This post puzzles me so much. Of COURSE you can handle the two of them by yourself! Have you forgotten the SNAKE incident so soon??? Well, I haven't. And I will remind you as often as I need to. You are a superhero mom. Go Dorothy!!! :D
