Do a little dance!

Which is exactly what I am doing right now. A little jig. Come on dance with me, it's kinda fun!

Ok, why are we dancing you ask? My dr. is letting my wound close! Granted, I still have to put honey on it for a week, and the nurse will come a few times before I go back next week but that is better than everyday! YIPEEEEEEE!

So, hopefully within a week, I will be all healed and then the real dancing can begin! :)

My sweet little munchkin is 6 weeks old . He is growing like a weed, and time is going by way too fast. He is becoming his own little person as he smiles as you, and looks so intently at you. He knows my voice and that is the best feeling in the world. He will look at me and smile and everything is right in the world and all that I went through is soooo worth it.

Sadly, our daycare situation is all screwed up. I won't go into the boring details but one of the places isn't working out last minute and I am trying to find him somewhere to go. It sucks because we knew this other person and now I have to find a place to hand over my little baby to a complete stranger. I can't even think about it too much or I find myself in tears. I wish this was going to be easier but I knew in the beginning it was going to be hard. I think I would give anything to be able to stay home with him at least a few days a week!

I miss him after not seeing him for a few hours while he is napping, it's going to be a hard transition! Someone told me today, you sound like a true first time mom. It got me thinking, that I am his mom, and I am different today because of it. Granted, I am still the same person, I am just better because of him. I have grown up, and I have grown as a person.

Some days I totally am rocking the mom thing, and others I am winging it. Leah hit it dead on when she commented on a post-- 'Don't you feel super smart and completely clueless at the same time lol?'


I have answers to your questions coming up so if anyone else has any....shoot! :)

Ok, I have to ask, why honey on the wound?

Awww, I hope you figure out the daycare situation soon.

So sorry about the daycare situation. How frustrating! I'm glad you are healing and enjoying your little man. I'm curious about the honey though...I've never heard of doing that. You are doing a great job Amy!

Great news about the would...that REALLY sucks about daycare. I hope it gets worked out in such a way that you are satisfied. A girl in my dept had a baby recently and I asked her if it was hard to leave her at daycare. She pretty much said, "yeah, the first day. And now it's fine." Hopefully you will get back into your routine easily!

Ugh! That is so frustrating. Any chance that you might be able to negotiate a 4 day work week? I know that not all jobs are conducive to that, but I thought I'd throw it out there. While my 4 work days are long (10 hours each), it is TOTALLY worth it to have every Friday off with my little girl.

Good luck finding a new daycare situation. It is SO HARD. Sending good vibes your way!
