I can't believe it's already time for me to start back to the ole rise & shine routine! I can remember the very minute I left North Dakota, found out that I would be on bed rest for the rest of my pregnancy, & wouldn't be starting my new job until January...it all seemed like d e c a d e s away. I should have known it was more like only milliseconds away.
My new job is sort of a dream for a working mama? I mean, it's part time...I can only work five hours a day-three days a week. I will typically go in at 8:45-9am & get off somewhere between 1:45-2pm. I get to work with my favorite little peeps...preschoolers:) And for the record, we pretty much play games, look at pictures & talk. And oh, the talking we talk... ;) I mean, I can talk some mean Paw Patrol & Blaze.
I've come to find that little bitties are my heart. In one weeks time, I have met eight kids who I just want to take home with me. They are all so very precious & if I can make a difference in one of their lives- I can say that seven-ish years of college was totally worth it. It's kind of one of those moments in life where you feel like your doing what you should be...ya know? When a job doesn't feel so much like a job anymore but like a way to help others. Maybe that's why this going back to work thing hasn't been as hard as I had imagined it'd be. <<but I always seem to speak to soon>> f i n g e r s c r o s s e d
And the back to work thang & nursing? W e l l, when I'm not working, I am nursing. I believe this nursing frenzy even has a name... a phase called cluster nursing. I don't know if it's because I've gone back to work or because he's hitting a growth spurt - but the second I walk on the door & he hears my voice or smells me...he starts crying & is ready to eat. Aaannnddd pretty much eats the rest of the evening:) While Cam begs to play on the IPad (more on this later!)
