Here I sit, on the eve of my second week of that work/school/mom/wife/ life, with my course texts, and class notes, and my large cup of coffee in front of me. The baby has been in bed for an hour now, and I just finished mopping the kitchen flIoor that I had been previously  neglecting. I’m […]

I have new found appreciation and respect for anyone who combines being a wife and mother with being an employee. I have further respect for anyone who adds college student to that mixture. My body aches and to add insult to injury my dreams at night are all work related. I am very grateful for […]

A lot has changed around our house since my last post. I started a part-time seasonal job at a major retailer. It’s not a lot of hours at the moment, and so far only temporary, but I’m optimistic. My husband has been taking charge of Jack while I’m away at work, and so far the […]

Last night Hubby took me out to dinner and a movie. Something we haven’t done since before I was pregnant. I guess you could say we were over-do. Thankfully, we had Grammy to babysit. Jack was good as gold for her the whole time, he even let her put him to bed. However, at 9:30pm […]

This past week Jack’s diet was more like that of a toddler. More cups, less bottles. Lot’s of self feeding, and table food. Cheerios. Are. Everywhere. I sweep the floor countless times a day. Jack has been fairly easy to get to nap during the day, but very difficult to put to bed at night. […]
