I feel wiped today. I wasn’t up particularly late, though I did have a tough time falling asleep. I was busy last night organizing A’s bag, packing her bottles, making my lunch, and laying everything out that I would need today. I knew that 6am would feel pretty early and I wanted to just grab and go.
A slept until 7am, as usual, giving me plenty of time to get ready before rousing her. I dropped her off with Grandma and Grandpa for a day of getting spoiled, and made my way to work.
The new office is great. My coworkers were very welcoming. I was kept busy for most of the day, and for that I’m thankful. I didn’t get to dwell on A’s absence, there was no time. My new job will be quite time-sensitive so there won’t be much time spent gazing out the window, wondering what my daughter is up to.
I was pretty anxious to get home at the end of the day and the bus just didn’t go fast enough for my taste. I came home to hubby cooking dinner and A in her high chair, pushing food around and chattering away. It was lovely to get back to my family.
I will survive being away from A. She will be going to daycare for the first full day tomorrow so I hope she has as easy of a time as today. Grandma and Grandpa will have her one day a week, which is a wonderful opportunity to build a relationship with them. But, as hubby pointed out, daycare will be her first chance to build her own relationship with someone. It’ll be a great experience for her, no doubt.
