So, I managed to be a working mom all week long. It was a long, hard week. On Monday morning, Matt and I took Katie to Nanny's (my grandma - Katie's great grandma) early Monday morning. We walked in the door and Katie immediately started smiling at Nanny - what a reassuring feeling for Mommy.
Katie had a GREAT day Monday, a rough day Tuesday, and GREAT days Wednesday-Friday. Nanny also managed to get Miss Priss on a schedule :o)
Her new schedule:
6:30 - Wake up time
6:45 - Nurse
7:15 - Arrive at Nanny's, Play time with Nanny
8:00 - Morning Nap
10:00 - Bottle
10:30 - Playtime with Nanny and Papa
12:30 - Bottle
1:00 - Afternoon Nap
3:30 - Mommy arrives (she has to wait on Katie)
4:00 - Wake up and Nurse then go home!
6:30 - Nurse
7:30 - Bathtime
8:00 - Nurse
8:30 - Bedtime
10:00 - Dreamfeed
It is going really well! I am enjoying being back at work and back on a schedule. I miss Katie so much during the day and have learned that "bribing" my students with getting to look at Katie's pictures is such a great incentive :o) Plus... Mommy gets to see pictures of her beautiful girl a lot!
I am going to have to figure out how to get the lesson plans, grading papers, and getting things together for school plus spend time with Katie. It is hard, but I think I can handle it. My principal is being very leniant with my requirements these days!
Just a sweet picture of little miss :o)
