Random Mom thoughts...

Work is still kicking my booty physically :0 This too shall pass.

It's Spring Break and I feel bad because I really can't spend it with my son. He's been with Dad since yesterday and appears to be having a ball! They enjoy each other so, that's cool.

He was sick at the end of last week and missed the last 2 days before Spring Break. Now I'm sick and had to call in to work today (not good since I've been there less than a month). I'm hoping to feel better by morning so I can go in; we'll see.

Really need some fun and a vacation; seriously!!!

Finally, he can tie his shoes!!

Before we left home the other morning, my little one announces "mom, I can tie my shoe." Lo and behold, he was right because his shoe was tied! Woo hoo!!! I can't take credit for this though because I really didn't put much time into teaching him how to tie his shoe (I know, shame on me).

I'm SO proud of him and he's so proud of himself. My baby just keeps growing up and doing all of these big boy things. I don't think I can take it....

What's going to be next...?

Monday (oops..Tuesday) Mom thoughts...

Work is going better for me this week. I really had to do an attitude adjustment because I was not in a good mood last week at all. I know I had to adjust my attitude and be positive so the little one would be positive about the changes.

Little one is doing well. I'm so proud of him; he gets up in the morning with little fuss (even though it's very early). He's been riding with my sis to school and getting out in car line..sniff, sniff. That's new for him because since he started school, I've taken him and always parked and walked him in.

Things are looking good here; getting into the groove of being back to work. Let's see if I still feel this positive in another week or so...LOL!

First week back to work...

and it wasn't great for me :( Not to sound ungrateful because I'm very thankful to have a job again after being out of work for so long, but it was tough! I was cranky and snappy most of the week (poor DS) and just tired, physically and emotionally.

The house is a complete mess because I haven't had the energy to even think about cleaning. Now I wonder how I did this for so long (working, being a mom, keeping a house together, etc.) I feel completely overwhelmed after this week and wonder if I'll be able to continue.

It doesn't help that the job I took pays about half of what I was making and I have to be at work at 7:30 which means leaving home around 6:45 to drop my son off at my sisters. I know my problem is that I want so badly to stay at home and just be a mom but I can't and in some ways that makes me angry.

Guess we'll see how next week goes.

Well yesterday was the day; I went back to work(sort of). Yesterday was orientation and some training. It was pretty boring but necessary I suppose.

My little one was a bit weepy the day before. He actually climbed into my lap and cried about me going back to work. It hurt my heart but I had to keep a straight face and do my best to comfort him.

I SO wish I could continue being at home but anywho....

These are the moments that I wish I was married or at least had a long term partner...
