Back to Work – Day One

Well, today was a rough day for the three of us! I didn’t sleep very well at all, because I’m ridiculous and lose sleep over whether or not I’m going to get enough sleep (Don’t worry, I’m well aware of how ridiculous that is!) I finally gave up and got up about two hours before I needed to be at work and the preparation for work and actually being at work went fine. But while I was at work being welcomed back with open arms, poor P and Mason were not having a good day. Mason started crying as soon as I left (which isn’t rare – he doesn’t normally sleep until several hours after his morning feeding) and never really allowed P (or himself) to get any more sleep.

Then, I was supposed to come home from work at 1 (they let me do one day of work from 10-2) because I had to come BACK to work at 3:30 to do some new employee training, but things kept coming up and I didn’t get to leave until nearly 2:00. When I got home, both P and Mason were at their wits end. All I wanted to do was take a nap, but P needed a break and Mason needed to be fed. He basically ate off and on until I had to go back to work. I got back home at around 5:00 and the rest of the night he was a fussy unhappy baby with two very tired parents. Even trying to eat supper was a chore. Ugh, I hope tomorrow goes better…..
