I went back to work Monday. Worked a half day. Missed the booger like crazy all day long. Quite a few tears from Sunday night through Monday morning. Yesterday I worked a full day. We figured out that Jellybean is not going to take a bottle anytime soon. Hates them and wants nothing to do with them. Luckily the daycare is literally two minutes away so instead of pumping I drive over there every two hours to nurse him. My work is aok with it. It actually takes me less time to run over and nurse him then it does to pump. Pumping is a pain in the neck anyhow with the setup, process and then clean up. I still have an oversupply so I take at least half an hour to pump alone. Jellybean and I both benefit from getting to see each other throughout the day and he has been a very happy baby at daycare so far. If this arrangement keeps working with no separation anxiety I'll definitely keep it up.
So my schedule looks a little like this -
5am - Wake up for work, shower, get dressed, pack lunch, get Jellybean's stuff ready, quick snack for JB, then a diaper change and in the car seat
6am - Leave the house
6:30 - 7:20am - Arrive at daycare, Feed the Jellybean, give him his Zantac, and play with him for a minute
7:30am - Start work
9:30/10am - Feeding
12pm - Lunch break - Feed the Jellybean and play with him
2pm - Feed the Jellybean
4:30pm - Off work, Feed the Jellybean and finally head home around 5pm
5:30pm - Home! Start making dinner while Jellybean plays
6pm - Bathtime for Jellybean, then storytime while he eats and hopefully falls asleep. He also gets his Zantac again and his vitamins.
7pm - Eat dinner, hopefully relax. (I puled out the foot spa last night! Pure heaven - with salts too.)
8:30pm - Jellybean wakes up to eat and goes back to sleep
9pm - Bedtime for his momma since we're going to be up a few times during the night too!
I haven't figured out where I am going to do any chores in there yet or run any errands. All in due time. Joey's mom had been visiting the past few days so she has been washing dishes after dinner and helping out. I'm going to miss that when she goes home. My house is desperate for a real down and dirty deep cleaning. I may ask my mom to come do it and pay her for it that's how needed it is! I have a feeling my weekends are going to be quite busy until we settle into a routine.
So as you see - I haven't had a chance to read any blogs or write any. Bear with me and I promise I'll be back up to speed eventually. (Then I'll probably end up preggo again with Jujube (who will be a girl) and my blog will fall by the wayside again.) Yes - even with a three month old I am planning more kids. I could live with about 10 or so - that's how much I love being a Mom. I think it was what I was destined to be!
