On several fronts: Cate and I are now old pros at traveling on the subway. Usually someone helps but if not, I just bump the stroller down the stairs. Tomorrow's outing: a visit to the Cloisters. Anyone want to go view medieval art and tapestries with me and Cate?
We also found two good sitters through an ad on craigslist. I was initially nervous to use CL, but both sitters are extremely nice and absolutely over-qualified. One girl is in a PhD program, the other in a speech pathology program. I think they can handle studying in our apartment while Cate is asleep. Tonight is our first date night. We are thinking about dinner and then braving the crowds to see the new Harry Potter. Could be fun? Could be stupid?
