Now Playing Tracks

Back to work

Tomorrow is my first day back at work after 15 months. So nervous.to leave my babies, especially Micah who is so attached and not used to being away from me. So nervous about work itself - i still have really bad mama brain and am so clumsy from being so exhausted. I had hoped and planned to have a week vacation or at least a weekend away from the kids to catch up on sleep before I returned… But as baby was so stubborn and refusing to give up the breast, it never happened.

I am constantly spilling things, forgetting to turn off the burner or turning on the wrong burner, having trouble figuring out meals, trouble making proper sentances… Not good for a nurse.

Hopefully it wont take long to get back in the swing of things and work will help my mental functioning.

Wish me luck!

Success

For weeks I have been playing a sesame street dvd get up and dance. Been dancing along, helping toddler do the moves, repeating the simple songs. Today had progress, we repeated one song over and over, and then he got up and started doing it. He’s a little miniperfectionist lol. First time he’s followed along in a group activity type thing, not lead by me. Many toddler programs or circle times he wont sit still, throws temper tantrums, or just stares without doing the simple moves that he can do like clapping or stomping etc. I can sometimes get him to follow and do the hokey pokey or head and shoulder type songs, but only if its just the two of us.

Very happy, once I can get more of this out of him, he might be more inclined to participate in group activities, with help of course, but hopefully less resistive.

At the Aquarium. Toddler liked the first few exhibits, then was amused.for 5 seconds on each from then on, once he ran up a ramp, only wanted to run up and down it, throwing temper tantrum after temper tantrum when I tried to pull him away and see more exhibits (let him do it for 10 mins first). Didn’t even get to see the butterflies that he was excited about seeing when we were on the way to the Aquarium.
