Hi-Ho-Hi-Ho It's Off to Work I Go, and the Super Bowl Baby!!

Good Monday to you!  I am in an extra ordinarily great mood today because the Steelers are Super Bowl bound, baby!!  Yesterday the Steelers managed to pull a win over the Jets, and make their way to Dallas on February 6th.  I am not going to lie, I had doubts during parts of the game, but they pulled it off.  And just in case you didn't know...the Packers will be going to the Super Bowl also.  Which is a little exciting since we live in Packer territory.  Don't get me wrong, I am not a Packers fan, but it's cool to see your town get really excited over it.  Then their dreams will be crushed when the Steel curtain falls on them...okay, enough football, but I am pretty pumped!

Also today is my first official day back in the office.  Mondays are really nice for me...I am the only one in, so I turn Pandora Radio on and sing all day, and I actually get a lot accomplished.  I feel bad for Eric because by the time I get home I am so ready to talk to someone that I probably overwhelm him with conversation.  Today is also Eric's first day as Mr. Mom.  He is home alone with both girls!  As of the last phone call everyone was still alive :)  I feel so blessed having him home with Molly and Lucy.  I hope they realize some day that not all dads would take their day off each week and stay home with their kids, willingly I should add.  Tomorrow Molly and Lucy will be going to my friend Carrie's house for half the day.  Right now I feel okay leaving Lucy, but we will see what happens tomorrow morning.  I am not sure if this is rational or not, but with Lucy being on the larger size, I feel like she is a little older, so it's not so hard to leave like it would be with a tiny baby.  Maybe that is my sleep deprived mind talking, who knows!

Thank you all for your comments and encouragement on the whole nursing thing.  I talked to my step-mom who is a pharmacist, nice to have in the family and she said after I take my last dose of meds tomorrow morning I would be good to go with nursing tomorrow afternoon.  So I am going to nurse the most, but still give Lucy formula once or twice a day.  I really think the thickness of the formula helps her stomach.  So that's the plan for now, we will see what happens.  If it doesn't work I am happy that I was able to nurse her for 6 weeks.  She is such a good baby, I am just plain happy to have her :)

Alright, better get back to work...I was performing my "mommy duty" as Eric calls it...aka pumping.  I almost forgot...Molly has a mini-dance recital tonight!  I think I might be more excited about it than she is!  They get to wear their costumes and all!  I am praying hers fits!  We ordered it in October, and her official recital is in April, but over the next month they have a couple mini ones to get them ready.  So hopefully we are able to take pictures, because I can't wait!

First....Go Packers!

And, second....sounds like a nice day at work getting to sing as you get the job done. I had a day like that recently. My student was absent, so I was working on some other projects for the teachers. I took my laptop into the room where I was working alone and played music all day while I worked. It was a huge blessing!

Good luck leaving Lucy tomorrow. I'm sure she will do great! And I'm sure you will be okay too. Ha!

I have been listening to pandora while I sew and stuff and I love it.

And back to work...I can't believe it's been 6 weeks...really?

Matt stayed home once a week with our kids. Best thing that ever happen to this mom & her babies! He really got what I did all day & how I was exhausted! but mostly I appreciate that he took the time to stay with are right. NOt a lot of dads would do that. Way to go Eric. Says a lot about him. (or that he is cheap like Matt & won't pay a sitter) LOL!
Love ya my friend!

We're excited too the Steelers are going to the Super Bowl. Hubs had Kyndra cheering for them during the game.

Well, sounds like work went pretty well. And that is nice that Eric is at home with them that day. It's good for all of them to have a little alone time. :)
