I've decided to go back to work. I found a job that I just know I'm going to love, too! Here's the problem: I Do Not Want To Put Baby E In Daycare! I did not have a baby so that someone else can raise him. Here is the other problem: If I don't get out of the house and work I will go Crazy. I LOVE watching Baby E learn and grow and do cute baby stuff (like yesterday, when he finally mastered the art of crawling), but staying at home alone with him is slowly driving me insane. Luckily, I found a FANTASTIC stay-at-home mom to take care of Baby E while I am away at work. Also, my job is seasonal, so I will work from April - October and have Nov - March to spend with him.
Okay - I forgot to post the last part and now it's a week later!!! I DO love my job! It is so great - I can set my own hours and when I'm done with my work, I get to go home - no waiting around until the clock says 5! Baby E has really adjusted well to daycare, too - there are 2 other babies, and he is in the middle.....I know he likes it there because when I go to pick him up he is all smiles - makes me feel not SO guilty about going back to work!
Yesterday was Easter and our family went up to Door County to celebrate the Holiday. We stayed overnight at a hotel with my sister's family and my parents. Baby E LOVED the swimming pool! I finally had to take him out when his little fingertips started looking like raisins. He also got his first Easter basket - filled with (what else) toys for the bathtub and a ball. Nana got him a bottle of bubbles - who knew a kid could have so much fun trying to figure out the bubbles.
He's cutting his 2nd tooth, so he's been a bit crankier than usual - poor little guy!
