This past week was my first week back to work. I have been dreading this since Owen was born. I knew it was going to be hard, but I didn’t expect to feel sick along with all the emotions that came over me. When Monday morning came around we were as prepared as we could be for Owen’s first day of daycare. We made up all the bottles he would need, had a few extra outfits, and all the paperwork was filled out and ready to go. All in all things went smoothly for his first day, but mommy’s was pretty emotional. Before I left I felt awful like I was going to miss something big. So I kissed Owen a bunch of times and cried my eyes out. Owen did great his first week of daycare, and all of his teachers said he was transitioning well. I wonder if my co-workers think the same of me because I surely still get this sick feeling after leaving home each morning. Everyone keeps telling me it gets easier, but I am not so sure.
We celebrated our anniversary (which is on Monday) a little early with a dinner out on Saturday. It was nice to have some neighbors watch Owen for a few hours while we were able to enjoy a dinner that was still warm :). Our official anniversary is Monday, which will be 7 years of marriage. We always follow the traditional gifts for each other, 7 years being copper and wool. I bought myself a nice new black wool coat at the Nordstrom sale this weekend, and Tony’ s gift should be arriving tomorrow. It is amazing how much things have changed this past year, and I can’t wait to see what the next year brings.
Owen turned 3 months yesterday, and we planned on going to the farmers market up the street but unfortunately the weather didn’t cooperate with us. I suppose there is always next week. These past few days Owen has been a bit crabby, and wanting to put everything in his mouth. It seems to me that he is beginning to teeth so I washed off some teething rings and threw them in the fridge. We’ll see if that gives him a break from the pain.
