GoatSpawn was born two days after my mother arrived in town, and it has now been four days since she went back home, leaving Foodgoat and I to go it alone with GoatSpawn. One thing we have discovered: we have to eat a lot quicker. We sit down to eat, and inevitably she'll wake up and say, hey, I think I need to eat too. So I scramble to finish my food, or Foodgoat scrambles to finish his food, so that GoatSpawn can get her meal. And we have to be more efficient in preparing meals too - it seems like there is just less time that we can spend fixing dinner, or one less person who can help, so convenience has emerged as a more important factor in deciding what to make for dinner.
