This last week was my first week back to work full time, it was also Scott's first full week with students. To be honest, it has been somewhat nice to get back into the swing of things and to get into a routine. After being off work for 9 1/2 weeks (I really can't believe it was that long) it is nice to have structure back into our lives again. An average morning, and by average I mean a morning in which Brendan cooperates, we start the day at about 5:00 - 5:30. By 7:00 we leave the house, all bathed, fed, with coffee in hand and a lunch packed. I am actually very proud of us that we are able to work together to get it all done. It is getting easier now that Brendan is sleeping more. For the past couple of weeks he only gets up once in the middle of the night. It sounds silly but this cartoon I saw the other day is true!
Work for me has been busy but I really must say I am glad to be back. When I first found out I was pregnant, there was never a question in my mind if I would return to work or not, as much as I would love to stay home with my baby, we need the income and I really enjoy my job. It is getting easier every morning as Scott and I form a routine that works for us!
