Well, we have entered a new age in the Bainbridge household. Orion has officially succeeded in being able to open a door when ever he wants. I am conflicted on how to feel about this. For the most part, I am in a state of dissapointment. No more sleeping on the couch in the morning thinking all is well, becuase the doors are all shut, and therefore blocking him off from anything he isn't supposed to be into. I have to suddenly remember to lock the bathroom door if I want any privacy, and what about the front door! Normally, I would just lock it, so that he couldn't get out, but he has been locking and unlocking doors for a couple of weeks, so that is out. On the other hand, I am happy that Orion has learned something new. Now I can say, "Go put this in the bathroom", and I won't have to go along to open the door. Really, I am conflicted about how to feel.
Last night, I had the wonderful opportunity to go out with a couple of friends. I felt like it had been ages since I got to just go our and relax and have girl time. I ate way to much ice cream (I felt incredibly sick by the time I got home), laughed, cried and just enjoyed having friends. I am hoping that now that the crazyness of the holidays is over with, I will be able to have more girls nights out.
