Back to work I go!!

All good things must come to an end - I've been working/consulting part-time (here and there), but I start a new full-time job on the 19th. Excited and sad all at the same time, but this truly marks a new phase in mommyhood for me and Vannah! I've been taking her to daycare a little earlier and letting her stay longer to get used to my new schedule, and honestly its been harder for me than her, but we'll manage. It will be NICE to have a regular paycheck again!! Wouldn't trade a minute of the past 3 years with her.

Remarkably well - we've fallen into a really good routine, she actually loves staying at daycare later and I thought it was a 40 hours work week, but it's 37.5 so I don't have to take her as early in the morning. It's at a local community college and everyone is SOOOOO nice and it's really going to work well for my family lifestyle and needs. About 5 minutes from my house/daycare so I'm not stressed about being out of the office and scooping her up. I fell incredibly blessed!

I'm so happy to hear the transition has been so smooth. Smile It sounds like great circumstances for both of you.
