Back to the grind

Today marks 13 weeks since Audrey was born. In one week I go back to
work. There have been a few changes in the last 3 months. To prepare
my mind for these changes I met with my boss on Wednesday to discuss
my return.

We talked about the physical changes - the construction on my end of
the building.

We discussed leadership changes - his new boss.

We discussed changes in our department's goals and responsibilities.

and we discussed my schedule. I requested to work from home 2 days a
week to save money on daycare and to give me more time with my
daughter. It was granted on the condition that there is enough work
and productivity isn't affected. I am VERY thankful and pleased that
I am given this chance.

Regarding daycare: our neighbor is going to watch Audrey on the days
I'm in the office. We are excited for this prospect. We know/trust
her. We know the neighborhood. Our commute is unaffected. And
Audrey won't be around a bunch of strange kids all day. She'll be
with the neighborhood kids ... Which is the next best thing to one of
us being home full time.


Three positives here...

1) Audrey is a girl
2) we like dressing her in pink
3) she grows fast and doesn't wear any one size more than a few months.

I washed a new fuschia shirt without soaking it first and all of
Audrey's white things are now PINK!!!!

I feel like Rachel in the second episode of Friends.
