Back in the Swing of Things

I've written a lot about how rough this summer has been for me, with Andy's work schedule and Arya's incessant nursing.  But now that I'm back to work I'm in a much better space.  Sad as it may be I have to admit that I am a much happier person and a much more relaxed mother when I'm working.

Getting dressed and out of the house each day is something that I know that I need.  Some days with the little witch this summer that just wasn't possible.  I come home and even though I'm stressed about work and frazzled from the commute, once I'm here I'm here.  I'm attentive and I like to play.  We make dinner and do homework and have dance parties and do crafts.

I have my little routine back.  Come home play, make dinner, do baths and bedtime, workout, watch TV with Andy.  I look forward to my weekends at home and my time off.

Some women were meant to stay at home and I give them all the credit in the world.

And some women were meant to work and I also give them all the credit in the world.

This is very much me - I'm meant to work and be out of the house; I also am more productive when I'm working than not. I find the house to be quite distracting and makes me uber lazy for long periods of time. Glad you're back in the grind and enjoying it! Have a great one Melissa! -Iva

Aw! I added you to my blogroll (neverjustahousewife.blogspot.com) a long time ago and I'm just now getting back into blogging and checking up with my old bloggy friends. This post really touched me. I've done both - stay at home mom and working mom. Both are hard and both are rewarding. You have to find what works best for you. I'm glad you are finally getting your groove back. I am too!
