Well, yesterday was the first. The first day of a new job for me and first day of day care for the bundle. We have all emerged unscathed. I just had a glass of wine.
I rushed to pick him up as soon as my half day was over and couldn’t wait to scoop him up. (Side note: The awesome company is letting me leave at 12:30 for the first few days; their idea!)
He was having a bottle when I got there and was perfectly content. When Husband dropped him off in the morning he called me to say that when he left him, he was engrossed in a toy and happy. All the toys are new to him so I’m sure he loves it. And seriously, the ladies there are awesome. Anyway, I snatched him as soon as he was done, he stared at me with a blank stare, and then smiled. A big gummy smile. I snuggled. He was in perfect condition. Not a scratch. I don’t know what I expected, but you know, things go through your mind.
And work was fine. You know the first few days are all: get to know how you work, how the company works, day to day stuff. I didn’t spend the entire 4 hours thinking of the bundle, but I have never driven so fast to get somewhere as I did to pick him up. I just wanted to see him and spend time with him. sigh.
I’m sure it gets easier, but after all was said and done, it really went well.
Have you tried the pre-made spinach salad from costco? It has bacon and onions and mushrooms and cheese and egg and this killer poppyseed orange dressing on the side. OMG it’s good and serves at least 4. Highly recommend it; worth the $8.
How soon is too soon to start *trying* to get pregnant again? The bundle is 4 months old, we’d like them about 2 years apart if we have any control over it and it would be now considered a “mature” pregnancy. Fantastic. I’d like my bod to get a little closer to pre-pregnancy weight, and it almost is, but part of me is like, what the hell, just get knocked up. The other part of me says, “say what?” The other part says to wait until bundle number one is out of diapers. The other part says, times a-tickin lady. The other part says, are you high right now?
Also, the roast chicken from costco is pretty awesome for the price too. And the rosemary bread? Excellent with the spinach salad. How bad can a salad be with cheese and bacon?
