Six weeks went by in a flash. Today I dropped Evie off at her new day care and I think I left my heart there with her when I walked out the door. I am happy with the choice I made for a day care provider, but it is so very hard to leave my tiny baby with someone else.
After dropping Evie off I took Zach to school only to find out that it was picture day. Somehow I managed to miss the announcement about pictures. Zach was dressed in sweatpants and a Cars t-shirt. He had toothpaste on his mouth and I didn’t even bother to comb his hair. It is so hard to get him up and dressed in the morning that I didn’t bother even trying to make him look nice. I was just happy he had clothes on.
From there it was time to go to work. Going to work wasn’t really the bad part of the day. I don’t really mind my job. It is just that I would much rather be at home with my kids. It also helped that I knew I was only working for a few hours because Evie had a doctor’s appointment. It took a few minutes to get myself situated in my office and before I knew it, it was time to pump some milk for Evie and head out.
I would have been very excited to be picking Evie up early, except that I knew where we were headed and was a little nervous. At her one-month check up, the doctor detected a slight heart murmur and suggested that we take her to a pediatric cardiologist for further testing so that’s where we had to go today. As it turned out, there wasn’t much to worry about. She slept through most of the testing and the cardiologist didn’t see any significant problems.
So now we’re home and snuggling on the couch. I’m trying my hardest not to fall asleep. Considering I only got about four hours of sleep last night, staying awake is quite a feat. I was up late trying to get everything packed and ready for Evie to go to day care and me to go to work today. On top of that, I was a bit on edge after I realized there were police helicopters searching our neighborhood with spotlights. I was even more on edge after I spotted the cop right outside my window with a dog and flashlight. I’m still not sure what that was all about and may never know I suppose.
I’m hoping tonight will be relaxing so I can get to bed at a decent time. 6:00 comes awfully early and I have to work an entire day tomorrow.
