I think this is the longest I've gone without blogging in quite a while. I just haven't had the interest in it. To be honest, this Mama is having a difficult time with going back to work. It's not the work part -- I still love everyone at the office and being there is fun. When I'm there I'm fine. It's the leaving-the-Boogie part. I was okay Monday and Wednesday but when I got home Wednesday night the Boogie was overtired and sobbing and calling for me. My Man said that it had been going on for a while and he could do nothing to console her. Now, my head knows that the exact same thing could have happened when I was home. We have rough days when we are together. No nap + a cousin to play with = an overtired Boogie. Even if I'd been home she probably would have acted the same way. But my heart hurts to think that my baby wanted me so badly and I wasn't here. I had Thursday off, and worked again Friday afternoon. I cried all day Friday. It was so hard. I didn't think it would be this hard to go back to work. I know the Boogie is fine. She is with her Mom Mom and Pop Pop, both of whom she adores, for a couple of hours. Then her Daddy is home with her. It's me. I'm the one struggling. I talked with my Mom about it, and chatted with my Pops online about it, and I felt better once I got through Friday. I know that we're still in the transition stage and that this will soon be the new normal. Anyway that's why I haven't felt like blogging lately.
But it's the beginning of a new week which I can be optimistic about. And I am VERY EXCITED about something ...
... 12 more days until my parents come! I just get all giddy inside when I think about it. We are going to have such a wonderful time!
Yesterday was a bridal shower for someone in our church, and I was asked to do the devotional. It was a good challenge for me! The shower was lovely and the bride-to-be was surprised and the food was GOOOOOD.
I got some squirt guns for the Boogie and gave them to her last night while she was in the tub. She thought they were great fun and she and I squirted each other. She goes right for the face and has pretty good aim! After a while we called for her Daddy and when he came in we soaked him. :)
Have I mentioned that my parents are coming in 12 days?
