So how did I do?
How did I do going back to work? I think I did o.k but not nearly as great as I thought I would before I had a baby. I used to think I was so strong and used to be proud of everything I accomplished. Now I seem to be beating myself up and I find myself crying so much. The worst part is that people have noticed and I thought I did a great job at hiding it.
Anyway...it is an ongoing adjustment and this week was much more rough than we anticipated. Our daycare provider, who we had some reservations about already, tried to double our price overnight AND via email..can you believe it? Most people can't...in one word? PSYCHO!! So even if I felt calm about everything, this would have thrown a wrench into adjusting anyway. We feel lucky that we found out right away. We followed our intuition and ended up putting a deposit in with a local daycare center and thank God we did. Diana starts there tomorrow and we are actually excited! Stay tuned.
In the meantime, I am plugging away. I have a beautiful baby girl and she seems to be getting better and better and growing more and more! The good news is that our insurance company is going to cover the expense of her special formula which will be a huge help!
Enough of this serious and depressing talk though....enjoy these pix of Diana at 7 weeks. She is really enjoying bath time and the changing table and she is revving up for Halloween!! :)
We are looking forward to Harvestfest in York this weekend too!
