I’ve gotten lots of sympathy from my last post about army bureaucracy and enrolling Spartacus; I’d like to happily report that Spartacus is now enrolled in DEERS, TriCare, and got assigned to the pediatrician we wanted, so the daycare forms are now filled out. I’d like to give TriCare a shout-out – I was able to enroll him and get a pediatrician in a nine-minute phone call, INCLUDING all the phone menus. So much better than the FOUR HOURS spent on post for something that took their representative four minutes to do.

He was a big hit. He got held by the entire English department, much of the Spanish and science departments, and my principal. Despite all this excitement throwing off any nap routine I hope to develop, he was extremely well-behaved. He only cried twice in two days – and only because he was hungry and I didn’t move fast enough. He sat in on the three-hour all-district convocation Wednesday morning, and I had numerous people tell me they didn’t even know he was there, he was so quiet – and he was awake the whole time! What mother doesn’t like hearing people gush over how good her baby is? This was also the first time I nursed in public – I wore a cute nursing cover, but I had still been a bit anxious.
