Unfortunately I can't be a stay at home mom and I've been back at work for a month now. I'm learning a balance of how much I can do. I'm having to let things go that would have put me over the edge before Cora Jane arrived. The house isn't as clean as I wish it was. The dishes aren't put up in a timely manner. And clothes don't always get folded. Most days I'm exhausted by the end of the day, but I wouldn't traded it for anything. I have manged to keep clothes washed and have some type of meal for us to eat. There is a part of being a working mom that I can say is a good thing. I treasure the precious time I do get with Cora Jane. I can't wait to pick her up every afternoon. I love that she is now staying awake longer in the afternoon. When we get home she wants to play. She has been going down for a nap around 5:00 and sleeping for about an hour. She is getting so funny these days. She just laughs and smiles most of the time. I adore my little pumpkin pie!
Thankfully I love my job. Getting to be the library media specialist at my school has been the best blessing for our family. I enjoy doing what I do everyday. I can leave work at work and I'm not stressed at all. I also have a wonderful aide that works part time in the library. She makes my job a lot less stressful.
As a side note...We now have a weekly adventure. I signed Cora Jane up for Kindermus!k. Our first class was last night and she had a blast. I can't wait to see how much she learns over the next 15 weeks.
