Adventures in the city

Yesterday, I made a trip into the big city (San Francisco) to show off the Chicklette at my office (and my husband's). All in all, it was pretty fun. The highlight was changing a poopy diaper in my office -- I can't imagine most law firm desks have seen the back of a baby's butt. And I got to check out the lactation room, which seemed nice but honestly I'm having a hard time seeing how this is all going to work out. I guess I'll find out in 2 weeks.

Anyhoo, we made it back home unscathed, and were enjoying an episode of the Gilmore Girls (which I have now watched in its entirety and am now reliving via repeats on ABC Family -- it's sickness, I know) when I got a call from my dentist's office. Apparently a "nice young man" (according to the 90-year-old woman who runs the front desk) had called their office, having found my wallet on the sidewalk in the city. He tracked me down via an appointment card stuck in some back corner of my wallet.

I called the nice young man, and my nice not-so-young husband is going to meet him today --thank you note and bottle of wine in hand -- to retrieve the lost wallet. Which apparently still has all of my credit cards and -- thank God -- my driver's license, because I think a trip to the DMV might put me over the edge.

I guess I'm a bit of a cynic, because I'm always surprised when someone does something nice like this. So, Mr. Nice Young Man, thank you for not taking your entire office out for drinks on my Amex.

Today, I'm going to try and not leave the baby on the sidewalk.

That is awesome! I love being surprised at how great people can be (by doing the right thing, right?). I'm a cynic typically too and its nice to see someone be good and responsible sometimes. Glad you had fun on your outing! LMAO at your poor desk's social decline to changing table status.

Since you are still Breastfeeding (and I do remember a few posts about how hard it can be), does it get easier? Seriously? I love it - like love it love it, but my nipples DO NOT. I am calling a lactation specialist to discuss b/c I think my girl is getting lazy on the latch and ends up biting my nipples...

Thank God there are still some nice people out there! I am so glad you got your wallet back. I lost mine at a restaurant a month ago and almost had a heart attack.
Thank God someone turned it in. I have nothing to blame but maybe the red wine I was drinking....oops.
