Where Am I?

I have been absent from my blog lately because I got a new job.  So, as I go from stay at home mom to working teacher mom, I haven't found a way to post my bento pics.  I have a few more sitting in my camera that I will put on here eventually.  I just don't have the same time in the morning to take pictures while making lunch for 3 and breakfast for 3 plus getting us all dressed and ready to go.  I didn't realize how good I had it before!  The girls have now eaten hot lunch at school a few times.  My brain is getting full and lunch ideas are not there, so when the menu is right, we go for it.  Having that extra paycheck helps there. 

This mom is adjusting to being in the working world.  Daddy has been home on vacation time for the first 2 weeks of my job.  The girls have enjoyed Mr. Mom after an adjustment period.  Yes, Daddy can brush your hair.  He can help with homework too.  Yes, he can find the way to the bus stop too.  Silly girls! 

Now they are going to before and after school care since Daddy has to work.  Another adjustment to make.  Bummer!  Two days down, each with one girl crying as I left them, different one each day.  I'm sure they will settle in, but this transition is hard on all of us.  It was very different when we did the daycare thing when they were little.  There was no homework to still be done as dinner is being made and they just want to relax.  I didn't have to worry about them getting to bed early as I was sure that they would have a nap at daycare.  Now, when they choose not to eat breakfast because they are just too sleepy, they are starving by the time they get to school. 

Meanwhile I get to eat "lunch" at 10:37 each day.  Considering I have breakfast around 6am, I guess it works, but boy am I hungry when I get home. 

I can't wait to get over the new stuff and catch up at work.  Maybe that will never happen, but I can hope, right?

  1. There is always HOPE! I work full-time, do not have children, and have been truly amazed by working moms. You face many challenges. Appears that you are handling your adjustments. Hang in there, "teacher-mom!" There are many individuals who appreciate what you do!
