Working Mom... Hard Work.

Hey friends! Sorry that I have had nothing to share over the last week. I started my job on Tuesday and it has been SO busy around here. I tell you what, I have always wondered how working moms do it. How they could manage a job, a baby, a house, and keep all of the balls juggled in the air at the same time.... After working a week, I am more curious than ever. If you have any pointers, please feel free to send them my way!

My work week started out on Tuesday. I was brave and I didn't cry a single tear. I did get choked up, but I didn't let myself really soak it in... maybe I am still in denial!? I dropped Keating off at his "Cousin" Nola's house. {I use quotes around cousin because her mom is my cousin's cousin ... if that makes sense. Realistically, we aren't really related at all I guess.} Anyways, here is a happy Blue in the car on the way to their house. He looks really broken up about being away from me all day doesn't he??Could two "Cousins" look any different!? HAHA She is so precious. He has really enjoyed his playdates all week. They are about three months apart and both are only children so they have liked being with someone their own size! All day long I am texted with pictures and videos of the two of them playing. It really makes my day! I could have never even attempted to go back to work if I knew he was not going to be special and loved on all day.

As for working, I really truly like my job. I have to confess though... nothing will ever be as great as my gig of stay at home mom. I really do miss it, but I just keep thinking that this is best for our family.

Everyone at my office is SO incredibly nice, helpful, welcoming and any other great word you can describe someone with. We stay really busy and it helps the day go by much faster. I feel like I have caught on to everything reasonably fast, so I don't have the deer in headlights look, {at least I hope I don't}! My office is about 7 min from our new house once we move, so I really couldn't work any closer to home unless I got a job the closest McDonald's!

The whole job is totally a gift from the Lord. I even discovered that my boss is also a member at my church. Small world! Everything has really worked out, and I am so happy. The days when I am having a hard time leaving Keating, being around such positive great people really helps get me out of a slump.

Thanks to everyone who has encouraged me along the way. I really do appreciate it!!

And seriously, if you have any working mom pointers, please throw them my way. I could use all the help a girl can get!

I will try to be back sooner rather than later to update with renovation pics.
