I have always loved the moon. My name means moon....Cynthia. My once in a blue moon is this having an extended period of time when I don't have to work. One major surgery and two babies have given me these breaks 3 time in the past 9 years or so. This is different from being unemployed....it's a REST!
Miss Wonderful Baby does not want to drink her milk from a bottle. This is all my fault. Well I guess it's some Jeff's fault. We should have forced OURSELVES to get her started on the bottle earlier. I thought she'd be fine for when I go back to work because Jackson was great about it. He didn't miss a beat. She's had a couple of bottles before and did well with the bottle when we were in NC. Today though all bets are off and she's mad as hell that I'm even trying. I've attempted with 3 different nipples and no dice. Hopefully, Jeff will have more luck when he tries tonight. She's cooing now because I relented and nursed her.
My eye is twitching again. I never thought this would happen to me but I think I might be on the path of those women who return to work for a very short time after the maternity leave and then quit. I can't just not go back and I can't quit without some study of our finances and a backup plan in place but I can feel it starting to tremor in me like an earthquake. Just like I never thought I'd leave headhunting and go corporate and then found myself part of an internal HR dept., I may be headed for the part time stay at home routine. I think it's a challenge I'm ready for....now how to swing it???
