In a brief moment when I’m online during my holiday I find an email invitation to an event in the US where I’d love to be. Since it’s out of question that he can join me this time, Robert decribes my choices clearly: “you either go with Alexander or with your breastpump”. Or, I add in my head, I don’t go.
After events I did with Alexander I’m pretty sure I don’t want to drag him along – intercontinental flight, jetlag and no Robert around will make any participation difficult. Travelling with a breastpump is annoying, but doable, but it’s not only milk that I’ll be taking away – Alexander is still too little and needs mama around.
So, it’s the third one – I don’t go…
