She Says… Uncle

That’s it. I’m crying uncle. There’s too much SNOW and ICE out there! Seriously. We’re practically buried. You can stop now. Please?

I’m on the verge of crying uncle about the amount of work I have to do too, so no time for a long post today. I’m going into head-down mode until my work is finished.

All of a sudden my feelings of “I don’t ever want to send Owen to daycare” have morphed into “I am SO relieved and happy to know that he is being taken care of and entertained while I work”. Even though saying that out loud makes me feel a tiny bit guilty, I think it is also a testament to how wonderful our daycare is and how confident I am that Owen is happy there. And although my work is very, very busy right now, it makes me feel accomplished and challenges my brain in a way it hasn’t been challenged in awhile. To see Owen’s gummy grin at the end of the day makes my heart burst with happiness for us both. I look forward to the day when he can tell me about what he learned and the friends he made while we were apart.

As we spend our Sundays house hunting and think about moving to another town, it makes me sad to think that we will have to move Owen out of this wonderful daycare. It’s one of the things I will miss the most.

Wow. If you had told me I would feel this way back on our first day (not that long ago!), I never would have believed you.

  1. what a gift to have found a daycare you love so much! spring will be here soon….i hope!

  2. I’m impressed at how far you’ve come! I can’t imagine being ok with not seeing my baby all day, but I also don’t have a job that requires my full attention. Even when I’m off running, I can’t stop thinking “I wonder what the baby is doing now?” and I can’t wait to get home and give her a sweaty hug, and that’s just a few hours once or twice a week!

    Hope it stops snowing soon!

  3. I’m ready for spring. And I am so over the snow and ice as well. Give me green grass and trees with leaves please! Also, you have come such a long way in just a few short weeks! I’m impressed.
