It's now Thursday and I've been meaning to sit down with this blog since Monday, but in all honestly it hasn't been easy transitioning from being home with my little Monkey all day and going back to work. Even though I'm a teacher and my kiddos all go home by 3:45 pm I am not home by 4. Instead I have to somehow squeeze in planning and copies and pumping into the final hour or so of the day. (Oh, pumping! How that has been a tough thing to pull off as well with my schedule and busy nature of my days. It's still so very much worth it, but man it's not easy.)
I just gotta keep telling myself that it's just 2 1/2 more months until I get to keep him all to myself for the summer.

Instead of stressing out about work this week (and, yes, there is plenty of work to be done that I'm simply ignoring for just a bit longer) I've just been enjoying my pseudo-SAHM status. It'll only be for a week, but I don't care. I'm loving having my little introvert baby with me at all hours of the day. I'm loving his smiles and even his morning person nature. Seriously! This kid smiles so easily and so readily in the mornings it's a wonder he's even my child. (He obviously gets it from his dad.) My little Monkey does make mornings for this non-morning person a whole lot easier and a whole lot more fun.

My little Monkey has his moments. He tends to take his time when it comes to eating. Especially in the evenings when he'll eat and LEAN right on over my arm and smile and look around. Then, when I think he's done eating, and I'm handing him over to his dad so that I can eat he suddenly decides he's starving. Or how about when he's hungry period, and is crying his head off, going "Nee, Nee!" But, those moments are few and far between the moments where he smiles and melts my heart. It's going to be hard to go back to work and miss out on his smiles and our cuddling time.
