I’ve been away for a bit, not on purpose though! Ironically, I recently created a page documenting my goals and one of my goals is actually to post more! Haha..guess I better work on that huh? My days are pretty busy with the boys and as you can read, one of my goals was to be present more…which is a goal I’ve been accomplishing. This means that I don’t blog from my phone as much and have to set aside specific blogging time.
Everything has been going pretty well. Both boys had major colds but have gotten over them thankfully. We officially own nebulizers. We are also officially besties with our pediatricians office. Everyone knows us by name because we’ve been in there so much since the boys have been born! Our doctor keeps telling us we are going to LOVE spring time..because things should calm down and normalize. I just can’t wait to leave the house more. One of the main reasons I’ve been stuck here so much is because my husband and I share one car, which he takes to work every day..leaving me carless. We plan to get a new car when I go back to work in March. I can’t wait to take them for strolls around the neighborhood.
On a positive note, I’ve been feeling MUCH less overwhelmed! Thank the Lord. So it took me several months (hey don’t judge me!) but I’ve finally settled into a routine and am on my own now most of the time. My mother-in-law even called us randomly to see if she could stop over to see my boys since I haven’t called her to help me. I’m proud of myself. I would love to take them out more, but that will come when I get my own car again. It’s not easy taking them out on my own because they’re so HEAVY! In fact, at their most recent GI appointment, the doctor showed more concern over ME than them! He wanted to make sure I had proper support for my back since I’m so tiny (about 97 pounds and 5 ft. tall). I was thoroughly amused. I do want to invest in a better carrier..I have the Ergo on my wishlist when I go back to work!
Speaking of which, I go back in about a month and a half. I’m so excited. I honestly can’t wait. By the time I go back to work, it will have been EIGHT months since I’ve worked. I took six months off. Crazy. I don’t know any of my students. Insane. I’m mostly excited to have money in my life again!! It will be nice being able to live a little less frugally..at least for a little bit. Mainly, I miss actually teaching. Being at home all day everyday has been quite lovely, but it’s not something I can get used to.
I will be working from March-June…will have off July, and August (summer) and will start up in September again. Meanwhile, my husband will continue to work until September. When I start, he will stop and officially stay home with our boys full time while going back to school (online). I even told my mom about our decision. We are confident it’s the right choice for us. Unless something major happens, it’s what we are going to do. I’m eager to have my husband home in the evenings and on holidays. His schedule is crazy and unpredictable, as is typically the schedule of a manager involved in retail. He’s been with that schedule for ten years so it will be such an amazingly sweet change. Here are some recent pics of the babes!
I can’t get enough of these cute little faces. Little hams!
Discovered the wondrous powers of the jumper…including the power to put a baby to sleep.
But really..is there anything more adorable than baby shoes? I think not.
Trying to lay one on his brother.
I miss my fellow bloggers. I hope you are all doing amazingly well..I will be catching up on your blogs! Xo
