Almost Time

I cannot believe that in less than 2 weeks I will be back at work and sweet Evie will be going to "school." I have mixed feelings about both of these things. While it will be nice to get back into the routine of my life, it will be a huge difference in our lives.

No more hoping she sleeps til 6am, as we will be out the door by then. No more late afternoon walks or snuggles. I admit I will miss playing with her during the day and watching the puppies love on her. However, it will be nice to be back at work and use my brain for more than calculating the next meal or nap time, to have adult interaction and have a reason to put on clothes and make up each day.

I also know it will be good for Evie to interact with other babies and make friends. It will also make  me value my time with her more.

The past 11 weeks have been such a growing time for me. I have had to throw my selfish thoughts aside as my baby has become the most important thing. Her timetable, wants and needs trump mine and its been by the grace of God I have been able to make it through.

And as if this year hasn't been hectic enough, we move next week. I guess when I decide to do something I go all in.
