Working Mom... 3 Months Update

It's been almost three months now that I've been back at work. Wow. It feels like summer was just here but it also seems like I've been working for a long time.

Luckily I've been very busy at work so the time passes by quickly. I really like having a part time schedule and I'm lucky that we can do that right now. My work has been very understanding and extremely accommodating.

Having Keira right down the street is perfect. This week she had her first injury (she tripped and hit her mouth on the lunch table). The teachers called me and I was able to run right over there in five minutes. She was OK but I stayed and cuddled with her for a while. I'm so so grateful that she is so close. She doesn't cry anymore when I drop her off and sometimes she doesn't want to leave!

Having my days off lets me still do those "stay at home mom" stuff that I used to do- go for long walks, grab tea or lunch at Starbucks, or meet up with friends for a play date.

It's a good balance between having a piece of my old life- work, and my new life- mommyhood. Having a break from mommy duties is nice, but it's even better when we are reunited at the end of the day :-)
