Hubs goes back to work a week from today. It’s an exciting and nerve wracking time for me. I am excited for him to go back to work and not be in my way and I am also a little anxious about it because it means I am going to be on my own with the kids for 9 hours a day. Which doesn’t seem like much, but when we have been doing it together for the last 8.5 months it’s a little scary.
I know lots of people who do it, and I know I can do it too. It’s just a change and it’s going to be a new adventure. Just the three kids and I. And one additional little boy once or twice a week.
The other part of this that is a little overwhelming is that Nick just decided he was done with naps, and Zoey has cut back to one nap. When Nick and Zoey were napping at the same time, I could catch a nap too. Alex was great and sitting on the couch and watching TV if I needed to close my eyes for a bit. But, now that’s no longer an option. And it tends to be an option I take when I am up with the kids throughout the night and/or they decide to wake up before 6 am.
I guess coffee and I are going to get to know each other a little bit better! It’s always an adventure in this household. My babies are always growing and changing and I am always trying to adapt to that.
Ah. The life of a stay at home mom!
Love, hugs and more to come later!
