Coming up for air...

Oh my, have I been a busy lady. After the blissful holiday break, with no running Em back and forth to school, and no work due to the semester break, I jumped head first into my new job. Let me tell ya, this is going to take a lot of adjusting. My little man has been super cooperative while I have endured online/ conference call trainings (thanks to the mute button on my phone, I am able to carry on full on conversations and play with him while I half-listen to the dronings on the other end of the phone). Isn't it funny how mom's have the innate ability to multitask.

I pretty much have our new schedule down pat. In the morning, I get up, showered, and log on before the kiddos awake. I enjoy breakfast and a couple books with them, get them dressed, and then I have an online meeting for about an hour and a half. During this time, the kiddos color, or do something else constructive with me at the table. I am surprised how easy it is to keep them happily occupied when they have scheduled activities. After that, I play with them for a half hour and take my lunch break while I drop Em off at school, eat with Ethan, and put him down for a nap.

During nap time, I (so far) have managed to get a lot of my work done, which is fantastic. After he gets up, we have a snack and then off to pick up Emily again. I just hope I am able to finish the extra trainings quickly and this schedule works out for the long run. So, keep your fingers crossed for me as I continue on this new adventure!
