Oh man this kid! Love her. As I mentioned, I started a new job in April. I'm now working in a NICU which is what I've been missing since we left Missouri over 2 years ago. It was nice to be in a less acute setting, but I was ready to make the leap back since E is a little older and is ok to be away from mama. It was a harry few months working full-time (they make you work full time to orient to the unit), mostly because 1. we aren't used to us both working that much and 2. it was temporary so the childcare situation was a shit show. BUT we got through it and in July I went to my part-time schedule and I LOVE IT. I work Sunday & Monday nights every week. My old hospital didn't offer that amount of consistency and there was no opportunity for part-time, except PRN nursing (which I was and didn't enjoy). All-in-all I'm very happy with the switch, but agh I'm OVER changing jobs.
All that was to say that in April my girl and I were MISSING EACH OTHER! Seriously - those first few weeks of 9-5 were so hard. I know people do it all the time and everyone is fine - its just a big switch for us. Anyway - I got out early one day and we took these silly pictures and I just adore them.
