My name is Kate Connolly and I’m a new mom over my head. Well, aren’t all new moms? Who knew adding a tiny 6lb addition to my family would be so much work? She is lovely though. Laurie, is my little peanutty-pie.
Laurie and I fill our days missing appointments…ahem, I mean re-scheduling missed appointments, nursing, diapering and chasing down bad guys.
Mostly I chase the bad guys and she naps - but not generally at the same time. It all started when I had the crazy idea to become a Private Investigator while on my maternal leave. The idea didn’t seem crazy at the time. I blame it on the hormones.
You can read about our latest adventure in FORMULA FOR MURDER. Laurie and I get up front and personnel with some French Diplomats who have a little more on their mind then diplomating – is that a verb? Oh well, you know what I mean.
The baby is crying now, so I have to go tend to her. Tell me what you did when your baby was small to prevent your mind going to mush? Does it make me less of a mom because I need an adult-sized challenge (like starting my own PI business) to go with my pint-size love?
