Making it All Work

After eight weeks at home it's time to think about work. Just think about it - not go back. I've got one more full week at home before I have to go back to the craziness insanity real world. So, I have had to start to think about how we are going to make it all work. What is our daily routine going to be like now that we have two kids instead of just one. What about nursing the baby? Carpools? Dinner? Swim team? Sleep? Why am I starting a blog now?

All that said, I am really trying to make the most of this last full week at home. The laundry and dishes can wait. I've taken naps with I and spent extra time 'nuggling with K.

At the end of last week I made a point of making extra time for her. Mom stayed with I for a bit, so I could pick her up from school and we could have some Mommy and K time. But what did she want to do? Go home and see her brother. "But he's my favorite thing," she said. I convinced her to stop at Sonic for a slush, but she didn't even want to sit down and enjoy it, she preferred the drive through.

We are always talking to K (and now to I even though he doesn't understand yet) that family is important, but its little moments like this that tell me its really sinking in. Now lets just hope I can stay focused on the family when I go back to work.
