Back to Work

Well, it's officially been 6 weeks and I'm back to work. It's a bit bittersweet. I'm excited about being back in the land of adults and doing what I love but it's hard to leave a baby. I decided to work a 1/2 day just to practice getting up, putting makeup on, putting clothes on, changing out of my slippers, etc. You see, up until yesterday, the majority of my days were spent NOT doing those things.
So, it started last night when I took a shower and dried my hair, set out my clothes, pre-measured bottles, got my computer ready, all those things. Cason woke up at 4:00 to eat so i set my alarm for 6:00 and went back to sleep for awhile. When I woke up Cason was still asleep so I was able to finish getting ready. I was sad to leave him sleeping becuase I didn't get my morning smile. :-(
Work went well, 1/2 day wasn't enough time but next week it's back to full time so I can get plenty done.
Like I said, I'm happy to be back at work and I really do enjoy it, I just had hoped we would be further along by now. He still isn't sleeping through the night, I still can't find time to make dinner, do laundry, take care of myself or anyone else around here. All of you that have kids are reading this and saying "duh, of course it isn't long enough" but I had no clue, still have no clue. I think I need a baby manual!
Please pray for me working next week, I think leaving for the full day will be even harder than leaving for a 1/2 day.

The first year is really hard. It will get better. You just sort of survive for a while and then one day you realize...hey, this is getting easier. And then, you do something crazy like have another one and we are back to square one.

You will be amazed at how just one or two months makes a BIG difference in him and your routine (for the better).

Hang in there!

It will get better, you will find that once you get back in your "normal" routine, that you just get more of the little things done inbetween. Don't have expectations to high that you get frustrated. Try to enjoy this time!
