One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

Back to the work & the talk...

Well, tomorrow is my first day back to work. I can't help but be a little bit depressed tonight about it. (Travis helped me try to get over the blues tonight by sharing a bottle of wine with me) I love my job -- and know that I need to get back into the routine... but it will still be hard to have to leave my babies at daycare tomorrow morning. Ugh!

I sat Noah down tonight after feeding him and had a little talk. I wanted to tell him just how much I loved him and not to be sad tomorrow when I leave him for a little while... I told him all about daycare... about all of the other little kids, and that his big sister will be there with him, too. The talk was definitely harder on me than it was on him... he fell asleep pretty much as soon as I started talking!

Good luck, I know it's not easy!

Knowing that I had Ava at day care to send with Noah really helped me transition. Plus, since they'll be together pretty much 24/7, it makes them so close once they're a little older:)

My first week back with two kids, I was so exhuasted I felt like there was no way I could keep doing it, but it gets easier and becomes routine:)

I hope all went well with day care today. Emerson and Brynn are in different rooms at day care, but the teachers still bring them in to see each other during the day. One day right before lunch a baby was crying really loud in the infant room and Emerson stood right up and said 'I need to go see my baby.' They took her down the hall and sure enough it was Brynn crying and seeing Emerson makes everything better...they know;)

Aw - its always hard to relinquish them to daycare. Hugs.
