So, I’m getting ready to start, week three of post-maternity leave, work. It didn’t take long for me to get back into the swing of things. Ralph had a rocky first day with RJ but every day has gotten better. He now has a greater appreciation for mothers. I’m very happy that we were able to keep RJ with us and eliminate the need for daycare. I also love the fact that they are getting in quality father-son time.
The biggest adjustment to returning to work has been managing time! There just aren’t enough hours in the day! I was use to running errands and getting things done before work. Now, I have to work around nap and feedings. Trying to shop with a hungry or tired infant is NOT a good idea. Scheduling hair and doctors’ appointments also require a lot more planning.
Speaking of planning, I’m finishing up the plans for RJ’s baptism. It’s a week from this coming Saturday. We spent the weekend ordering food for the brunch and getting ourselves something to wear for the blessed event. I still have a few things left to do but we are pretty much ready.
The first post-pregnancy clothes shopping trip wasn’t as awful as I thought.
Side Side Note:
I’m now the owner of a Verizon iPhone!!!! Let me tell you, I LOVE it! I’m using the WordPress app on the phone to write this post. However, I must say the WordPress app for my BlackBerry was much better. Oh well, I guess you can’t have it all!
