Lauren is growing weary of apartment living. In truth, it’s not a new weariness; she’s been longing to have her own house for years, but it’s not a viable option given their current financial state.

Isaac feels the emasculating sting, but he tries to hide it from Lauren. He wanted to pick out a lamp for Cade’s nursery, but he couldn’t even afford it.

Even more embarrassing, he was kicked off the property.

Cade came home from the hospital, feisty and pink, his little fists banging angrily at the air as we drove him home. However, once he got home, he seemed much happier. I could see Lauren tense on the drive, thinking we were in for a rough ride. She doesn’t realize how ‘in’ I am for this parenthood gig.

We are still working opposite shifts, that isn’t something that will change anytime soon unless one of us drop our jobs. Isaac did get promoted to Stock Manager at the grocery store and is actually bringing in a decent chunk of change. I’m still the breadwinner, but another promotion or so, and I believe he may pass me by.
