Blogging becomes extraordinarily difficult when done in the presence of an 11-month-old who’s eager for your attention and not at all shy about letting you know.

    And really, how could you say no?

    Oh, what a cutie. Blogging definitely slides way down the list of priorities.

    You could blog, but, she’s going to start pulling stuff off of shelves until you stop!

    When I’m not paying enough attention to her, she goes for the bookshelves, favoring as almost always the books on ethics. You think she’s telling me something?

    When my daughter was that age I had a big office I shared with two other grad students who were rarely there, so I always took her with me. She had plenty of room to nap and crawl around, and for a long time did a good job of amusing herself most of the time and only needing my attention occasionally. Around 11 months that changed and she wanted much more one-on-one interaction time, and my productivity plummeted, until about half a year later when we put her in the campus childcare. But of course 13 years later I have no idea what it was that I didn’t get done, while I have great memories of my time with her.
