So I am officially back to work. I even got a small paycheck for the last week of May. That is probably the highlight of being back at work. Although I do admit that I do like the adult interaction and even some of the actual work.
What I don’t like is the commute and my short evenings with my family. I know it will get better and our routine will solidify as the weeks go by. But right now Maria seems to just act out all evening. Poor Charlie comes home tired and is either fussy or sleeping. And me: I’m tired too. Somehow 1-2 night feedings aren’t so exhausting when I don’t have to work 8 hours a day. And on top of that there are potty breaks from Maria at least once a night. (Along with other requests for snacks and pillowcase straightenings).
Sorry to complain. Just a struggle right now. And an explanation as to why you haven’t heard from me lately.
I will leave you with a couple pictures of what keepsme going courtesy of my iPhone which is allowing me to post this over lunch!
