So like I mentioned in my last post, today was my first day back at work. The only reason I'm blogging right now instead of sleeping in bed, is because I have things like washing the diapers and prepping the bottles for tomorrow to do before bed...and I am too tired to start. Reason I'm tired? Stayed up late cleaning so that my grandmother, who watched Jack today, could stay in a clean house. Also wanted to do everything last night so I had less to worry about this morning.
Anyway, I woke up at five, got myself ready...Jack woke up at 5:45 (perfect), I fed him, etc and left the house at 6:30...got to work by 7. I cried when I kissed him goodbye but one I was in the office, it really wasn't as bad as I thought it would be! My coworkers had left me a Welcome banner they made taped to my cube...signed by everyone with little notes. So sweet! Another coworker left me a card and some chocolate :) It was nice to walk into. And it was just nice to be back at work interacting with people all day. Staying at home all day is 100 times more exhausting to me than going to work...I feel blah and lathargic by the end of the day and count the minutes until John comes home. Even when I make sure to spend a couple hours with friends each day or whatever, my only really fantastic days were days when we were around lots of people all day...like at his baptism. Things like that.
So I really think that once I make the adjustment, working is not going to be bad. I leave work at 3:30 and home by 4. I came home and grandma was singing to Jack and he was sleeping on her. She was soooo upset and worried because he had scratched his forhead with his nails. He does this sometimes when he cries so we always try to keep his nails super short. He came out at birth with scratches on his face! I told grandma not to worry this happens a lot! But she still asked me how John reacted to the scratch when he got home from work. I was like, Grandma!!! Dont worry!!! This happens all the time with Jack. When he fusses he scratches at his face. I told you, this kid is dramatic :) Anyway, he took several cat naps and two, one hour naps today. He was in a GREAT mood tonight but it seems like the more/better he sleeps, the sleepier he is...so he went to bed tonight around 7:45 or slightly earlier.
I was so excited to come home and see him tonight!! John is staying home with him tomorrow...can't wait to hear how it goes!
