And the school year begins...

A few weeks ago, I reprised my role of "working mom" and summer fun abruptly came to an end. Eric soon realized that his summer hiatus (as a result of his client going on strike and demanding Mommy-only time) had come to an end when he recieved his first early wake up call at 5AM. Last years' stint as a SAHD (stay at home dad) was such a success that Eric signed up for the sequel and the transition has gone much smoother this year for all of us. Alexander remains the star of the show, and as he turns 2 this winter, we are anticipating he will hire an agent to negotiate his toddler wants and needs with us. This year promises to bring daily walks with Grandma, trips to the park so our lead actor can flirt with older women who feed him raisins (once I learned they were 4 year old girls, the creepiness level of that statement diminished), hours of pretend play with Little People, and coming soon...playdates with Gypsy and Addy. As with every movie, the credits roll when Mommy pulls up to the house at the end of the work day, with her boys standing on the porch grinning, pointing, and yelling "Mama, Mama, Mama" to welcome her home.

Not a bad gig for any of us.

I'm so glad you guys are settling in to your new routine and that your transition back to work has gone smoothly.

Maybe I should be a teacher...
