False Alarm.

And no sooner did I publish my last post, daycare called. He had been "crying excessively" since I left (he was asleep when I left him) and they couldn't get him to stop. So I flew over there in tears thinking the worst only to find him asleep when I got there. Another nursing mom who works there and has a little girl in his class had him and he was sucking on her daughter's pacifier tucked in tight to her chest. Maybe the smell or sense of another nursing mom calmed him- that's all I can figure.

In a way though, I'm heartbroken that he didn't need me. He found comfort in another woman... I guess I better get used to it, huh?

ouch! i can't imagine how hard this must all be.

we need to find a way for you to work at home! :o) i guess if that were possible you'd be doing it though.

i hope the week flies by and that your weekend is extra long and special!

Thanks Steph. No one really thinks about this part when they're pregnant or giddy about having a new baby.

I'm already brainstorming work at home ideas. I asked my husband how much I had to bring home before I could quit my job- he laughed. I didn't.

We'll see what happens, I guess.

Whether you're a stay at home Mom or working Mom, I think it's nearly impossible to find a balance. I question the choice I made to stay at home with Addison every day (Am I holding her back? Should she be around her peers more? Will she be socially retarded?)

I think that being a Mom is HARD. Is anyone out there really sure of what they're doing in this parenting gig? I'd love to meet them. Being responsible for that perfect little child's health and well-being is a BIG JOB. You're doing great at it!

I've been thinking about you all week. I know it's tough, but it will get better. And then you'll get to go through it all aver again when he moves up to the next class. At least that's what I'm doing. I'm such a wimp.

Having done both (sahm, wohm), I can say that neither is easy- but it will normalize. It will take a while, but it will all be okay. And that sweet boy that wants to marry me? Daycare baby.
