Funny How You Forget.....

that taking care of babies is hard work!  I have now worked two full days at my new job.  I love it!  But tonight my back is killing me lol :)  I know it is from holding and rocking and picking up one heavy 4 month old and one even heavier 18 months old.  Funny how I forgot how much work taking care of babies can be..... but oh wait I never had babies 13 months apart and now I know why!

All kidding aside, I really do love this job.  It has been an adjustment being at someone else's house but so far it has went well.  Hopefully we continue to do so. 

It has been a challenge trying to coordinate rides for all the kids to and from their various activities especially since my hubby is still working his side tax job.  But so far we have managed.  I think once hubby is done with that things will go much smoother.

One of the best things I did to keep us on track is have a meal plan!  That has been a super help and something I will definitely have to keep up with.  I will have to adjust when I do grocery shopping though.  I maybe able to run and do small shops with the babies in tow but I doubt I will be able to do big ones like I am use to.

All in all the first two days have went well.  I hope it continues on this path!


  1. I know your back and arms are hurting. I am glad everything is going well though plus this will get you back into baby mode

  2. It will be nice to have the extra income. Plus build upper body strength!

  3. Congrats on your new job! I'm sure you'll be tired for a bit until you get into the routine of it.
