I'm going back to work next week!
I've determined after this almost full month of temporary lay-off, I don't think I'd be a very good SAHM. Heh heh. I think I have less patience WITHOUT having the time away at work.
Is that horrible?
I seriously thought I'd love being home. And in some respects, I really did! More time to organize and clean house, do laundry, actually having time to get errands and grocery shopping done in a more leisurely pace, cooking dinner (Big D does waaaaaaay more dinner cooking in this house, than I do) , time to do my crafting--

That was awesome and much needed.
But just like it was on my maternity leave after having Avery, Hunter has turned into a total CLING-ON. This kid is attached to me like a second skin and wanting "Mommy, Mommy, Mommy"!
I feel sorry for MY mom (who watches them) when I go back to work next week...she's probably going to have a couple of whiny days with her sweet little grandson. And little Miss Avery has been a Mommy's girl from Day 1. And she is (STILL) teething and has been a tad miserable lately.
I seem to seriously have way less patience when I'm home with the kids all day, every day. And I kinda feel guilty even saying that! I'm sure some people would think, "Hey, get over it. You're lucky to be a mom and enjoy your kids!"
But for those of you reading me right now who ARE moms, I'm sure you've all had these days! Right? Um, right?
And the other postive about going back to work (besides adult conversation that has NOTHING to do with pb&j for lunch and "who has a poopy diaper?"), I get to appreaciate THESE faces all the more when I come home to their beautiful little smiles:
