Motherhood Monday

It's been a little bit crazy around here.  Life is in full swing.  I've learned a few things, over the past week.

1.)  Going back to work isn't so bad, if you have a great babysitter. 

It's amazing the peace of mind I have.  I expected to struggle much more with going back to work. But, I feel so good about the dear friend that I have watching my son, that the transition really wasn't so bad (not to mention my mom watching him once a week).  I think I can do this after all . :)

2.)  Getting things done, just isn't that important.

I found it a bit confusing that Baby seemed fussy for me when we were home, but happy and sleeping all day with Oriona (my awesome babysitter/friend).  When I mentioned it to her, she told me she just liked to hold him all day.  I realized that I'm just trying to get too much done.   
     The new plan around here is to spend time with my little guy as much as I can, and optimize the time after he goes down to accomplish other things.


    3.)  A hose does awesome things.
      This little guy was pretty gross before I took a hose and some bleach to it.  Now it's in great shape!  Buying used still works for this Mom (as long as it's washable, I'm good).

      4.)  I'm willing to make sacrifices for the good of my sweet boy.

      Financial sacrifices, sleep sacrifices, time sacrifices, social sacrifices....they hardly seem like sacrifices when they are for his best interest.

        2. *YAY* for buying used! :)
          I can't even imagine how much $$$ we've saved buying second hand. Nothing a little bleech/clorox wipes/laundry detergent can't fix!
