Is that so?
This is not an indication of how my day went, because it went quite well. But this is proof of the sibling wars that are waged in my home daily. Are you kidding me?
My most FANTASTIC news of all is that my sweet little Olivia Mae ONLY fussed - did not cry, did not barf, did not scream, did not bang her crib against the wall- she ONLY fussed to sleep tonight. And get this. It was only for a FEW minutes. She's asleep. Bless her sweet little heart. And mine, too. Because I know you know how terrific I am. *snort*
In the last couple days I have put in about 10 hours at my newly acquired (work from home) job. Hannah had a hard time with it today. Mainly because the bulk of my hours were done during the day, not in the evening like I had hoped. I decided that I would speak to the children about it to see where they were at. I also explained to the children that it was only this week that it would be hard on every one. Mainly because I'm training and on the phone, but feel confident that I'll be flying solo before too long. What I did feel good about today was the fact that I am able to break my hours up how ever I like. I'm able to work for an hour, then play with the kids. Work for an hour, fix lunch, play games. The best part of my day was when Olivia screamed into the phone that she pooped and needed her pants changed when I was speaking with one of my superiors.
And with that little tid bit, I'm off to shower and jump into bed. I put in my hours today - both on and off the clock. My marketing work is finished for the day, my house is clean, the kids are happy. I'll take the success when I can get it.
