Today was my first day on my own at my new job.
I know it seems pretty early to be going to work after having a baby just 2 weeks ago but it was time.
I have 2 bosses and so far the older one is proving to be a little more demanding than the other at about 2pm and again around 5pm.
They are super cute though. 🙂
Today I started my journey as a stay-at-home-mom.
I would say my first day went pretty well.
-Abigail woke up at 8 and we ate cereal while Elsie slept.
-We all got dressed to go to Elsie’s 2-week check-up and Abigail helped me by grabbing last minute things like shoes, jackets & the diaper bag while I fed Elsie.
-We made it out the door & to Elsie’s appointment on time.
-No toddlers ran away from me in the parking lot.
-We arrived home and Abigail & I worked on an art project while Elsie napped.
-A friend stopped over for a few minutes and was greeted by a mostly clean house, a mostly behaved toddler & a cute baby.
-Abigail had a meltdown when I asked her to use the potty before her nap. We tried to work through it and I finally just put her to bed thinking I would have to wash her sheets later. She woke up dry.
-All three of us napped at the same time today and we all woke up after Terry got home from work.
-We had chili that I put in the freezer about 5 weeks ago for supper. It was a recipe I had never tried before and we all enjoyed it. I split it into 2 gallon freezer bags and one of them would be enough for 4-5 adults. Terry is bringing some to work for lunch and then we have another meal of chili ready to go for later in the week.
I am glad my first day went well. I know every day won’t be productive or I won’t feel motivated to write a blog post about how it all went but today was a good day.
Today’s lesson learned: Naptime is a wonderful time of day.
