Hi-Ho, Hi-Ho...

Today was my first day back to work after being on six weeks of maternity leave! That's right, my boring, lazy, uneventful and non-productive vacation (yeah right!) is over. To all of you moms out there you know that being home with your kids is a lot more work than going to work! I really enjoyed my time at home this summer but I was ready to get back into my old routine and I couldn't wait to see all of my friends and clients that I have missed! I was a little nervous to get back in the swing of things at the shop but today felt really normal so I guess it won't be that hard. I love being able to be home and also to be able to work! I have the perfect schedule.
Some reasons I love being home are:
-Letting my kids have a nap schedule
-Watching some lame daytime TV shows that I have come to love!
-Sleeping in (as much as a 13 month old and a newborn let me!)
-Playing with Skylar
-Having a chance to get some housework and laundry done...really hard to do when you work full time!

Some reasons I love going to work are:
-Having adult conversation
-Making my own money
-Keeping up on industry styles and techniques
-Looking forward to seeing my girls after work! It sometimes helps me be a better mom when I miss them a little!
-Keeps me busy and makes my days go by really fast!

So, I guess I hope to be seeing some of you soon...My chair is now open for business again!
