Amazingly Smooth

Yesterday was Pat's first day back at work since we had baby Leah.  We were lucky that his block leave fell right after his paternity leave.  To say I was worried about how it was going to go with just me and the three little ones is a bit of an understatement.

I guess you could say I got lucky.  Our first day went amazingly smooth.  Sure it started out a bit rocky when I tried to jump into the shower.  Right after I got the cleanser in my hair the boys woke the baby up.  I rinsed as quickly as I could, and we started our day.  After the shower, I thought the day may continue like that, but it didn't.  We actually accomplished a lot.  I was able to feed the kids breakfast, feed the dogs, vacuum, the boys and I worked on worksheets while Leah napped, I started some thank you notes, the boys and I ate lunch together, I even got both boys down for a nap, we played outside, and I made dinner since Pat ended up coming home a bit late.  (Thank goodness for my BabyHawk carrier.  It made yesterday so much easier.  It should be added to my newborn essentials list.)

It really could not have gone better.  I know that not all my days will fall into place quite like it did yesterday, but I'm so thankful that yesterday was a good day because it has given me the confidence that I can handle everything myself.  I think I needed that little reminder.
