First day back at work and Mother's day

Today was the end of my time home with the boys. I went back to work! And both boys went to daycare.

So that meant that both Eric and I got up at 6:30am so that he could shower while I got ready and then got Scott up, Eric took over and then I got Jeremy up. It was the first day back, so we were rusty and slow and it took us a while. But we all managed to get out the door at 7:15am, which overall isn't too bad. I am a little tired now, but getting back to work was good.

I love my kids, but I want them to be a big part of my life, not my whole life. For 2.5 months having them be my whole life was too much.

I haven't written about my 2nd mother's day yet. It went well. I asked Eric for a night out without the kids (and him, since someone had to watch them). I found a couple of girl friends to go to a movie with me on Saturday night and it was my first break from the kids since Jeremy's birth. Two thumbs up. We had a nice brunch and mostly took it easy on Sunday. On Monday we took Jeremy on his trip to Disneyland! It went really well and he was a champ! Scott liked going back as well. This was probably our last trip until the fall... sad!

And that's the "I'm back at work" update (shhh, nevermind that I got distracted and didn't post this for almost a month of being back!).

  1. I know I've commented on your blog before, but every time I read, it's like we live parallel lives. 2 kids - 19 months and 2months 3 weeks. Just started both in daycare this week. And I asked for the night off to see a movie for Mother's Day! I saw the Johnny Depp thing (awful, but the popcorn was amazing and I didn't have a monitor strapped to me!) Anyway, hope pumping at work gets better. I find it awful and awkward. Check out my blog if you get a free moment (ha!) -
