This first day of May:
- This morning there was no traipsing through Paris with my gorgeous young boyfriend, pan au chocolat in hand; rather, I walked through the parking lot at my office, breast pump over one shoulder, laptop over the other. (The Hoos is still quite attractive and young, though).
- At the end of the day, instead of being greeted by various staff at the glorious George V with a "Bonsoir, mademoiselle!" I receive a distinctive "hehehe" giggle when I open the door to LP's classroom.
- Instead of dinner on the Seine, complete with a cheese plate and heavenly baguettes, the meal will be prepared by one of the finest chefs in Norwalk (that would be me) and consumed with a view of whatever is showing on the Discovery Channel.
- The best part - in 2007, I am the mama duck.
