A working mommy

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.
