The good news is that I get to bring my sweet baby to work with me a few days a week. While I wish so much that I could be home with him every day, I am beyond thankful for a boss who is so understanding and that loves kids so much! Crew has come to work with me twice so far and did so well. I can tell he is still trying to get used to being in a new place and figuring everything out, but it couldn't have gone better. I know it will be so hard for me to focus on my work while tending to Crew, but hopefully I'll get it figured out soon.
My office has turned into a nursery and I love it. We've got a Pack n' Play, a stroller, a bouncer, toys, a TV and so much more for sweet C. On the days that he doesn't come to work with me, he will be with either my mom or Will's mom. I am so grateful that we have grandma's in town who can come take care of Crew. It puts my mind at ease.
I never ever thought I would want to be a SAHM...until becoming pregnant. And that desire only intensified by about 1 million after our son was born. I don't want to miss a thing. Unfortunately, not working just isn't feasible for our family right now. I trust God's plan for our lives and know that if it's meant to be, He will pave the way someday. But for now, I am continuing to thank God for a great boss, great grandmas, and an even greater husband!
Since Will is substitute teaching right now (more on that later), school has not started back yet so he has Crew at home this week. I know C will love the bonding time with his daddy! Their first day together went great. I didn't have any doubt that it would. Crew loves Will!
Happy New Year!
