What a week

Yes this is Sunday and as I was just saying to someone I am not getting the best blogger of the year award because frankly I stink at keeping our blog now lol... As you can tell I survived my first week back at work, but wow was it different. I love my job and being back was like I never left, but then when I got home it was a different world. I didn't waste any time at the end of the day to get home, and I had to of the biggest smiles waiting for me and great big hugs, it can't get any better than that. Then I had to cook, clean, and of course give two little beauties a lot of attention. To say the least at night I fell into bed. I was so exhausted at the end of the week. Then the weekend came and we took the girls to sign them up for gymnastics starting in the Fall. I am so excited and I am sure they will be too. They love to dance, and tumble and flip. They loved the gym to!
Today we didn't go to church, Johannah still has a cough and I want to make sure she is 100% before we get around too many people just so she doesn't get anything else. Oh I forgot to mention over last weekend she started to not feel well, and so on Tuesday we took her to the Dr. because she started coughing really bad on Monday night and she didn't get much sleep, and on Tuesday morning she started throwing up, the Dr. told us she had the croup :( So after the first day of steroids and a humidifier in her room she was feeling a little better, and now she is feeling much better. Tonight we had so much fun! While I was cooking supper we danced in the kitchen to toddler tunes and had so much fun! They love music and love to dance! Their little personalities just shine when they dance and sing! I love it and it is these memories are the memories I want to cherish the most!

I'm so glad to hear Johannah is feeling better! Wow, you have settled right into Mommy life so beautifully!! Congrats on going back to work, but double congrats on having such a beautiful family to come home to. :-)

Glad things are going well. It is hard to go back to work and exciting because of our kids (at school) all at the same time. It is so nice to come home to those cute faces isn't it? Nothing better!

Ack croup!!! My boys had it all the time when they were smaller. The steroids always made them nuts, too. :) Glad Johannah is feeling better. You sound like you're loving mommyhood!!

Back to work - wow! I am lucky if I can manage to get a shower at this point in time - and usually I have to take it with a little one climbing in and out of the shower with me - ha ha! Ok, maybe in a few more weeks I will be able to THINK about going back to work. Gotta do it, gotta do it! Thank you for the inspiration!
