I feel like my real life will be coming back in stages. DH is still home this week, and then my mom wants to take a couple days off to help me next week, so it probably won't be until later next week that it is just me and him. Then, in June, DD will be home, so we will have that adjustment. (I think this is the one I am most afraid of) Then, in August, I will go back to work, and it will be the last piece of my life puzzle.
I want to enjoy these next 11 weeks with just me and Zachary, because it is most likely the last time it will be just the 2 of us. Starting in August it will either be school and daycare for all of us or school breaks where they are both home and it is the 3 of us.
I'm a week post partum, so still not allowed to drive yet. They said two weeks, but I'm short on help, so I'll have to drive to Donavan's appointment on Friday. Noelle will be going back to school on Monday. I think this is going to be the most interesting part of everything.
So far, it's not been to difficult to manage them both. Thankfully Noelle is independent and understanding, so as long as she gets her food, she's fine. She'll sometimes come nap with us, but most of the time she just wants to play.
Nia, no one told me I couldn't drive. In fact, I asked since I remembered the 2 week rule, and she said that as long as I'm not in any discomfort and can stomp my foot as though slamming on the brakes, I was OK to drive. I'm not willing to drive any further than Danny's school and back (about a 5 minute drive), but we couldn't justify John taking another week off.
Whitney, I am also afraid of June and summer break, LOL!
The driving thing wasn't in my discharge papers and I haven't called my doctor's office to check, but when I asked the nurse in the hospital, she said a month! I looked at her like she was crazy. There is not way I'm not driving for a month. Then she said 2-3 weeks. I remember being told 2 weeks after I had Noelle, so that's pretty much what I'm going with.
