My Newest Adventure Begins!

This morning, I return to work.

It's not quite as dramatic as I make it out to be!  I am only returning to part-time status.  :)

But still, it is an adjustment for everyone.  And when my previously scheduled sitter called to cancel yesterday afternoon...it all came back to me...why I quit working in the first place (if not just to be home with littles!).

It all worked out.  Audrie's coming.

My kids LoVe Audrie.

She's 17.  A senior in high school.  And hoping to go to film school (Hollywood or NYC).  She does incredibly creative things with my kids (while the Mr. and I are out on sporadic date nights) like make rainbow colored pancakes from SCRATCH (who does that?!!!) and teach my kids how to create their own "Fox 4 Kids News Segments" using the iPad.  Seriously.  She's a gem, and both the kids and I love her.  We were sad when she told us that she got a real job...at Target...this summer.  Less of Audrie!

Grateful she can help us out this morning.

Oh...and it's thundering and raining here.

Really wish I could go back to bed.  :)

I'm gonna really miss this kid today...




...Benjamin's on the mend.  Mary's been working diligently on her Lion King Medley (more to come on that!).

Happy Monday, Friends!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. Your kind words are appreciated! As Mother Teresa said, "Let us always meet each other with smile, for the smile is the beginning of love."
