I have to keep reminding myself that I'm doing what's best for my family. Although, I would love to stay home with him that is not what is best for our family. I have a career. Hubby and I have educational debts to pay off. It's also helpful for him to be able to socialize with other kids. I think his development will sky-rocket from being with the older kids (18 month old girl and 3 year old girl).
This is a unique week for me (as far as my work schedule) but it works out great. The set up this week is great for transitioning. I'm off today so I dropped him off a little later and I will pick him up earlier so it's not the full day. I'm also off tomorrow so I'll let him stay a little longer tomorrow. Wednesday is a full day. Thursday and Friday are also shorter days for me. We'll see how it goes.
I guess I just have to love on my baby a lot more when I pick him up. Although, I don't know if that's possible because I already do that. Anyway, I think I'll go hit the gym (first time since his birth). Exercise has always been a good distraction for me. So is shopping and cleaning but I don't feel like doing either right now.
I'll update you on how his first day ended. I welcome any tips, words of encouragement, prayers :)
