Motherhood Musings

So much to talk about, and so few words to say it with. Since I started back to work, things have been crazy. Before I started back to this crazy job of mine, Jessy and I were starting to get a bit of a rhythm. Well, as much of one as a six-week-old little girl can get, anyway. I got a little too caught up in trying to force a schedule on my little girl that I frustrated and stressed myself out.

I was going to write about my first day back to work (c'mon... you know you want to know!) but I found myself getting so teary-eyed I decided it wasn't worth it. What I will say is that tons of JessyNicole pics cover my cubicle wall at work. It takes the sting out of not only what I do, but the fact that I work outside the home. In fact, I just brought home about 50 or so prints of her and want to take them all to work with me. 'Nuf about that, let's talk about the fun stuff!

I need to dig up my flip album! The little flip album I have is nothing special, just a simple, A-frame design with a cover and several pages, into which two pics can slide, that flip over the A-frame. The little brown album with some sort of design on it stands on its own. That's how long it's been since I have seen the thing... I haven't had it at my desk since I worked at Ford last year and can't remember what kind of design is on the darn thing??? C'mon, Kimberly! I know I have it somewhere, just have to locate it. Hello, housecleaning! Oh, wait, I have to find the vacuum cleaner and trash bags for that, don't I? Oy. (Don't worry- before you start having visions of TLC's Hoarding: Buried Alive, it's not that bad. Yet.)

Since I have pretty much let loose with JessyNicole's scheduling and let her keep the reigns as far as eating/sleeping/changing, things are a little less stressful. A little. Never mind the endless running around and juggling that happens around the job. We are finally figuring things out as far as a routine; I even bit the bullet and went and bought more bottles (sale at BRU! YEAH!) and started using the dishwasher to wash them instead of washing them by hand. Oh, the relief that has come out of just that! Let's just say that Jessy has not found my hairs in her bottles since. Just kidding.

Come to think of it- that's one thing that's definitely worth hoarding around here- baby bottles! lol  I had bought the kind I am using as a trial to see if they helped with Jessy's fussiness. The bottles I originally had just weren't cutting it. Sure enough, they worked- third brand was a charm! A little pricey, but a charm. And if my little girl is comfortable, that's what matters at this point.

Ahh, the Crazy Thoughts of a busy runaway mommy mind. The gears have slowed down, which is a good thing, as the smoke detector will stay quiet for the time being. Off to get some oil to cool those gears.

I wanted to post some recent Jessy pics, but Blogger is being a butt about uploading tonight. :( ARGH!
