Wait and See

My first day of work was more successful than I imagined. I could not have dreamt up a better first day back actually ..

I got up, showered, pumped and left for work ..... Had a talk with my boss about MT's upcoming surgery, no daycare, and wanting to work part time on the days that E has off ... She was receptive and open. I have the go ahead to work p/t on E's days off until the end of the year. This will get us to the other side of MT's surgery and on the track to finish getting him vaccinated. She is going to talk with her boss about seeing how far into next year I can work part time (i am hoping for March- dreaming for June). All of this will buy me more time to see if working is going to be good for us and if so, allowing me to find the right care for MT ....

Really, In my mind, It doesn't get any better than that .. She didn't say no, she was receptive and understanding ... She is giving me an opportunity that I am very grateful for ... I could not ask for more .... We will see how this pans out. I am cautiously hopeful ...

Work itself was slow and boring ... Reading new policies, checking voice mail and email ... Getting re-acquainted with all the office staff and equipment..... It really wasn't bad. I attribute that to knowing that MT was under E's care and I was not at all worried about either of them. I drove home thinking that the drove was too long. I went into work much later than I would have liked to .. I tried to wait for MT to wake up and now we know that I just need to pump in the mornings and leave instead of waiting around... I want to get home before 6:45 like I did tonight ... I walked into the "witching hour", MT just wanting to nurse and nurse and nurse .. Me, trying to cook dinner and get him a bath ... So we know that I definately need to get to work much earlier in order to not come home into all that again ..... Here's to hoping I make it in much earlier tomorrow .... The problem with that is I am not sleepy yet ans the alarm will go off WAY too early .. I have been a bit spoiled .....

On a different note:

MT went to see Santa Last week .... He did well .. the picture isn't the best, but Here it is .. His First Santa ..

Santa 001

He had just woken up from a nap so he has the sleepy face, but It's better than screaming.

Well, I better get to bed, work comes early ... Oh one bad thing about going back to work .... They blocked Google Reader and Gmail ... What will I ever do? It's like they except me to work or something.

Glad to hear your first day back went well. It does make a huge difference to know that your baby is well cared for. I hope they allow you p/t for many many months!

I'm so glad that your first day went so well and that you're boss is receptive you letting you have a flex schedule! That is awesome!

And those are great pics! I'm jealous since I waited too long to do the Santa thing and now I have to sit in hours of traffic just to get to the mall to do the stupid picture. I'm debating if its even worth it. Maybe I can make G dress up? :P

Amanda said...

I am so excited that things seem to be going so well at work!!! I hope and pray (and in a couple of weeks I should be able to cross my fingers and toes for you) that they let this work until June!

Those pictures are just too cute. MT is so photogenic!!

Didn't your job used to block and unblock google/gmail all the time before? Give it a week and it may be open again. ;-)
