Last week was such a big “milestone” week for us as it was Jack’s first time in daycare. I’m going to write something longer about childcare and why/how we made our specific choice. Leading up to his start date, I was a ball of nerves and excited as I was getting pretty desperate to get my head above water work-wise. It was very emotional– for me… Jack loved it! And that made me one happy mama!
LAST WEEK’S WIN: Honestly a bunch of wins from last week. We did a quick one-night stay in the city for work, but it was actually a blast and didn’t feel like a work trip at all. We started a new language/music class and that was so, so fun. Knowing Jack loved daycare was a huge win. I squeezed in a number of workouts at my gym, which always feels like a win. AND I went into the weekend with a fairly clear slate so I didn’t have to open my laptop until about 9pm on Sunday for a couple of quick tasks.
THIS WEEK’S GOAL: My anxiety has been really quite bad lately. I think it has to do with the fact that Jack is eating more solids and starting the weaning process?? I really don’t know where it came from besides that and it comes in waves throughout the day. I feel so much better if I can get to bed before 11pm, work out (even if it’s just a power walk), and spend like 10 minutes reading. Hoping to keep that up….
Swim class in the morning; then Mike, Jack, and I drove into the city for our overnight stay.
Similar blazer (I found this one on Poshmark– it’s old j. crew)
Worked from the hotel in the morning, drove back home, then spent the rest of the day with Jack. We had our first music class before dinner, too.
Jack’s first day at daycare! I had three major deadlines in the morning that I had put off and then I had a breakdown of missing Jack (and mom guilt) around lunch. Went to the gym and felt (a little) better… but it was a tough day.
Jack’s second day at daycare and a much better day for me 😉 I did start my day with a hole in my tire, but it could have been a much bigger issue so all things considered, a relief! And I spent the rest of the day working (!!!).
Did a barre class in the morning, spent the day with Jack. Mike and I went out for a date night in Maplewood.
Brunch with my sister in laws, followed by pickleball and playground time.
Jack had gymnastics in the morning, then we spent the day playing and running errands. It was such a gloomy day.
