I don't know about the rest of you, but this past week was hard. After almost two straight weeks without bedtimes, alarm clocks, and 24/7 emails it was back to reality. During my time off I did some "unplugging" and soaked up my time with my boys. I feel like Jackson has grown up so fast and I'm missing it. Every time I turn around he's changing!
Speaking of change, the new year meant back to work for Momma and new arrangements for Jackson. Amidst our
crazy unsuccessful search for a new nanny our neighbor offered up her services to us. Like I've said before, she has three children of her own and has started watching a couple others as well. So, the situation was perfect! Jackson loves her and her kids, they are all sweet blond babies as well:) Anyway, I was really happy that Jackson would be able to interact with kids his own age. He is such a social little boy!
I packed a box full of food, toys, diapers and wipes to take with Jackson so that we wouldn't have to bring that sort of stuff everything. Monday came early, and I was running around like a crazy woman. Mr. ended up walking Jackson over to the sitters so that I wouldn't be too late for work. He said that Jackson never looked back and was ready to play. When I got home that evening, Jackson was so not ready to come home. I know that he missed me, but it made my heart so happy to know that he was having fun!
Tuesday was a little crazy, which was all my fault. Jackson had his follow-up appointment with his ENT and I totally forgot to set my alarm. I woke up at 7:45, brushed my teeth, put on some sweats and we ran out the door. Jackson's appointment was at 8:15! After his appointment we dropped him off and I ran through a quick shower before heading to work...I'm sure my co-workers appreciated that:)
Wednesday and Thursday went pretty well. Jackson is cutting all four of his eye teeth which has given his little bottom the worst case of diaper rash I've ever seen. He has also caught a little cold, so my poor boy was a mess by Friday. I got him in to see his pediatrician Friday morning, oh how I thought these days were going to be in our past! He gave him some medicine for his butt, the diaper rash has turned into a yeast infection?!? He's also on medicine to dry up his nose and breathing treatments as needed...Jackson just can't catch a break. I'm tried, really really tired.
Did I mention that I weaned Jackson down to just nursing before bed over the holidays?!? My sick boy just woke up from his nap...more on that later. Happy Saturday loves:)
