So it’s really early in the am and I’ve been up for awhile…..insomina SUCKS. THe Babe turned 9 months old on Wednesday, which I find hard to believe. It’s been a weird week–I could try to summarize, but where do I begin??
I have just one evening left at the tutoring center–the split work day is so not cool, and with L in summer school, it was really rather impossible.
I’ve been further exploring childcare options, and think I may have found an acceptable place for the Babe-it’s a center, but SOOO much better than the other two I looked at. I don’t know if it’s because the day that I need to make a decision is looming closer, or it it’s really better, but I’m feeling better about it. I also have her on waiting lists at two in-home places that have come highly recommended. So we shall see. It was deemed that that Babe and anothe staff baby could not be at the school past Memorial Day, due to the fact that they are a distraction and a liability, etc. WHATEVER. It was the school board’s decision, and I’ve decided to suck it up. The “free ride” was nice while it lasted!
The Babe had her 9 month check up yesterday and the doctor actually said to me, “you really won the baby lottery with her!”, which I took as an extreme compliment!! She was just a doll (as always), and the staff is simply in love with her. He’s a GP, so there aren’t that many babies who come through–so the ones that do get a lot of attention! She’s 29 1/2 inches long and exactly 20lbs….which puts her in the 95 and 70 percentiles respectively. Once he heard how much she eats, the doctor didn’t feel the need to dwell on her size anymore–she’s just of a slightly slimmer build, I suppose.
I just finished reading I Don’t Know How She Does It, a great story of a working mom on the edge. Well, actually she goes way, way over the edge. It covers just about every issue that I think women with children in the workplace deal with, and reading it I laughed out loud. I highly recommend it!
I’ve also been lured onto MySpace.com I continue to work on my page to make it a bit jazzier. It’s a sort of virtual lunch table, circa 1990. I don’t know what else you do with the site, yet, but all the kids at the tutoring center have pages!! And, apparently, all the cool thirty-somethings are doing it too.
Which brings up a point–didn’t the poeple on that show, thirty-something, seem a whole lot older than those people born in the early 70’s now?? If you are my friend, you will agree with me!!! Can you still hear the theme song? I can!
