We're here!

This past week has flown by and I've been so tired. I think mainly it has just been tough to get into a new routine. Last week I worked half days and it was not working. I wasn't able to eat lunch till around 1:45 (after I picked up Grace) so I was starving and I wasn't 100% comfortable where I was leaving her on Tuesday and Thursday. So this week we made a couple changes and it already feels better. I'm just going to work 8 hours on Mon and Wed and 4 hours on Friday (with a lunch break on the long days). So hopefully that will go well.

Grace seems to really like daycare. She gets excited when she sees all the other kids her class, but she is also excited when I'm there to pick her up at the end of the day. Her teacher said she is sleeping on a mat on the floor like a champ. She just gives Grace her lovey and she lays down.

Anyway, I really feel like I have the best of both worlds. I'm able to get out, work and socialize and talk grown up talk for a few hours a week and then the rest I get to spend with my precious baby girl. Hopefully I will still be saying this in a couple months :)
Here is a pic of Grace playing with her Little People dollhouse that we got her for her birthday. Isn't she so cute.

I'm so glad your new situation is working out! I'm sure Grace loves playing with all of her new friends. Eleanor loves going to the church nursery, and there's only one other baby there her age. I can't imagine how exciting it must be for Grace to have ALL those new playmates! And you get have playmates too! :)

I hope your new situatioin works out better for you - you have to be ok with where Grace is so that you can concentrate on your day!! Jaycie in the past few months really shows an interest in the other kids too! She has a doll house that she loves too! Isn't it so cute that even when they are so young they really play with the people!

That's cool you're working 2 1/2 days now because that does seem easier. Hope you have a good week!

It has to be hard when you are unsure about leaving your little one somewhere. It is great that you were able to sort it out to work best for your family!
