First Week

I've been hesitent to even blog about this because I so don't want to hear the negative crap from last time. But anyways, I spent my first week at work. I enjoyed being back at helping customers it was nice. If I could have a perfect world I would much rather work part time. I may even speak about that to my supervisor to maybe try 30-35 hours a week just to give me more time with Oz.

I cried like I thought I would when I dropped Oz off the first morning. It was hard to do. What was my blessing though was picking him up at the end of the day and when Barb asked him "who's that" he smiled the largest smile I've ever seen and he laughed. That totally made my day. I do like the home environment that Barb provides. It may not be my home exactly and yes I know they won't treat him exactly like I do but the quality of care is great and what I expect. And I am pretty darn anal retentive so I've got high expectations.

On top of this new experience for both of us I was also having my period. This is so TMI for poor Aaron my only male reader but its actually a concern for me. My emotions have been pretty stable my whole life as far as PMS goes even with the endo. Now post pregnancy I've noticed that I swing emotionally pretty radically. I've caught myself getting ready to lose patients on my husband for really dumb reasons and stop myself and that's not normal. Anyone with endo after having a little one notice a change in their PMS symptoms?

We are going to dress Oz up here shortly for Halloween and take his photos. He's a little chicken and should be the most adorable little chicken in the universe (yes I am biased).

I am glad to hear that the first week went well, especially with the day care situation. Phew! I am sure Oz will be the "most adorable little chicken in the universe." Can't wait to see the pics. :D

It was hard the first day I dropped mine off too, but I promise it gets better!

I think I can manage a little TMI. I don't think there's much I haven't heard before. Kelly's endo surgery is probably the reason we have our little guy, anyway! I'll have to ask her if she noticed anything different after the birth.

I hope you're enjoying the new job. It's got to be hard to be away from Oz. I have a hard time with the idea of someone else watching my guy, especially someone I don't really know. Kelly and I went out together for the first time last night, and it was just weird not having Cole around. They don't let you get away with anything, do they?

I cried like the dickens when I had to leave my new puppy for the first week or so and that was two years ago. I can't even imagine what you're dealing with, but just remember that you are making his future better!

I'm glad Oz is doing well with the new arrangements. You know, mothers have been doing this for thousands of years but that probably doesn't make it easier. As a fellow military spouse, I envy you for finding a job in your field that you enjoy! It seems that the more degrees you have, the less likely you are to find work but you've hit the jackpot...congrats.
