One week down...

I'm officially a working mom again after surviving my first full work week. A few lessons I've learned this week:

1. Pumping in a Science lab supply closet is pretty interesting. Pipettes, beakers, the occasional odd item (a pair of sneakers, a volleyball, a case of microwave popcorn) all kept me company while I tried to envision my little pumpkin nursing. Visualization is supposed to increase your milk supply. Whatever.

2. Four hours of uniterrupted sleep truly is a luxury, and it's JUST enough to make it through the day. Of course, I was actually slurring my words by Thursday night and had to take a little nap just to make it to dinner.

3. I missed my work colleagues and my students, but they'd understand if I won the lottery and quit working tomorrow.

4. Coming home and getting a huge 3 month old grin makes it almost ok.

What a gorgeous girl you have. Isn't that smile just the payoff???? I'm just struggling to string sentences together by Thurs night, too.

Happy weekend, girl. Enjoy snuggling your cutie pie!!

That is one super cute baby. Thanks for the comment. Take an extra wiff of that baby's head for me. :-)
