It’s been a little while since I’ve actually blogged about what’s going on with us! So let’s play some catch up… I started a new job two weeks ago. I’m back to working in an office full-time. It was a hard decision to give up my two days in the office/three days working from home for a company I absolutely loved, especially because it did give me so much extra time with Blaire. But, ultimately I really felt it was best for all of us that I take this job opportunity. It was getting harder to get my work done from home during the correct hours, because I felt bad ignoring Blaire while trying to get work done. In the end, Blaire absolutely loves her (in-home) daycare and is very happy to get to spend more time with her friends, so it’s been a win/win for both of us. I know Blaire is having fun with her friends, and mama is getting work done. ;)
We’ve had lots of exciting things going on around here. The most exciting? BLAIRE IS SLEEPING THROUGH THE NIGHT! In close second? We ordered a new, king-sized bed! I absolutely can’t wait for it to get here. I’m also super excited to buy new bedding. Let the online shopping begin! The past few weeks we have had some crazy, cold weather and lots of snow. We didn’t leave the house on February 1 because we got over 12 inches of snow here! It was fun to spend all day inside by the fireplace, not so fun to have to drive in it the next few days as they got the roads cleared. But Blaire sure does look cute all bundled up! You’ll notice she is currently in a binky phase. At daycare the other kids her age both use binkys, and so I start sending one with her to play with so that she wouldn’t try to steal theirs. We also realized that it soothes her at night – allowing her to sleep through the night. Which is obviously been amazing! She also had her sixth tooth pop through this week.
Now that I’m working out of the house full-time, you can guess that the house is messy and I’m behind on laundry. Once we get everything together for Blaire’s birthday party, I’m hoping I can get myself into a better routine to keep on top of everything. But there’s always something, isn’t there? And I’d rather spend evenings playing with my daughter and then binge-watching DVR with my husband than cleaning! I’m open to any tips you have to staying motivated to keep your house clean. Seriously! Share them below. …And happy hump day! We’ve made it halfway through the week. xo
