Going back to work was hard. Taking Colton to daycare is going to be harder. And leaving both kids for a four-day conference will be the hardest. One side of me is emotionally torn up about the entire bit, the other half is looking forward to a Heavenly Bed and nice heels.
I’m back at work now! The day started with a surprise breakfast brunch, courtesy of my co-workers (everyday should start with home-made French Toast, Quiche, chocolate chip muffins, fruit and coffee – don’t you agree?).
I have to admit, today, my brain felt like mush. I know how to do the work, but it’s not coming back to me yet. I made it to 3pm before tearing up at my desk. I miss that little man of mine so much. I can’t wait to rush home and squeeze his little face and have tea with Kelsey. Tonight will be a good night.
And if you’re wondering, it does feel good to get back to work. I’m sure you think I’m crazy, but I really do think I’m a better mother and wife because I work. Alright, alright … I am a little crazy.
Kelsey’s after party starts now. Her cousin, Connor came over bright and early for a little fun on the bounce house. We have it until noon today so why not make the most of it?
I seriously went outside this morning in my robe (without my morning cup of coffee) and bounced around as if I were the three-year old. Ryan’s in there now – bouncing and getting attacked by kids. The best part about all of this? I woke up to left over cupcakes. Breakfast is served!
Life with Kelsey has been a bit rough lately. She is two weeks shy of turning three and boy, are we feeling it. The terrible twos never really hit in our household, so I think she is making up for lost time. Here are some things that make my three-year old throw a fit. We […]
The Tings came over yesterday for a sip and see. They brought the bubbly (Mimosas for girls, beer for boys) so we all could sip and see baby Colton. I spent most of the time trying to convince Teri to join the mommy club, but so far, she only has eyes for Colton. She’s a natural at being a parent though. Danny […]
Colton is 4 weeks young today! I can’t believe it. Time is just flying by. Four weeks ago, Ryan and I welcomed a second blessing into our family. And today, we get to celebrate the last day of the year with him. He’s been such a dream baby. He’s a bit over 11 lbs (wowza) and […]
Have you ever done a hashtag search on instagram? I about peed my pants when I searched for #momfail. It made me feel so much better to see that I’m not the only one making “mommy mistakes”. You can search from your computer on Statigram (here), just do a search for “momfail” then click on the […]
Seeing Kelsey and her friends march around school in their costumes was the cutest thing I’ve seen in a long time. Here are some photos from Kelsey at the annual Halloween School Parade. Doing some morning twirls before going to school. We arrived at school without a tantrum and in full costume! This is one of her best […]
Yep. Ashley looked like a Princess, even three months shy of giving birth. Her baby shower was remarkable. Beautiful. Stunning. Sophisticated and full of heart. Just like she is. Ashley spoke about God, family, love and her soon-to-be son. I had tears in my eyes as she shared her love with us. This baby is a blessing […]
