Apple Fritter Rings

So it happened, I had to go back to school this week after my 8 weeks of maternity leave. I was all “mmmmkay, not a clue how I’m going to survive this” but heyho, one’s gotta do what one’s gotta do. The good thing though? Baby girl is fully allowed to tag along with us (uhm yes, Branimir and me study the same thing and we have all the same courses… Is that weird? We don’t share our toothbrush so we’re still pretty much individuals. Sort of…). And I’m convinced she’s loving all the attention she’s getting.

She already went last week with her daddy and it must have been a blast because when Branimir came home he was going on about how a baby would make it super easy to pick up women. HELLO??!!?? You took my baby girl with you and random women started flirting with you? Do they not see your ring? The baby? Alright, time for me to go back to studying as well!

Ok, it’s kind of fun to play it all out in a jealous rage but in reality I’m not that bothered. Maybe a little bit. It’s just a fact that a man with a tiny baby has this cuteness factor nobody can resist. And then there’s her little face and her little toes and her little hands – seriously, too cute.

Now while it’s certainly not much fun to be awake for the greater part of the night just to get up when she’s finally asleep, pack her in the car and drive off to go listen to someone talk about pedagogy for hours on end – it’s not the worst thing in the world. But being a student bringing a baby to class? Yeah, it’s not for you if you’re trying to keep all attention away. Nope, really not. At least we can brag about our two-months-old already studying towards her degree.
