What's everyone got going on for this last week of June?
For me, it's just one week closer to the end of my leave. I have this week and next week, and then I'll be back to work. Thankful for a great job to return to, but so not looking forward to not being home. This week, I'm planning to take the girls to the free kids movie at the theater, story time at the library, Grace has a dentist appointment tomorrow (not so fun), and hopefully some other fun stuff that we don't get to do when I'm working. I also need to wrap my head around what it means to return to work: get my work wardrobe in order, make sure my pump bag is set and ready to go, plan for lunches, etc. Oh, and I'm taking my mom for a repeat mammogram on Friday.
Are you pumping for your little one? Planning to pump?

It's supposed to be miserably hot and humid this week. DH is on vacation but we don't have too many plans. Most likely swimming and staying inside as much as possible. We might hit up the lake for a day or two. This weekend we will celebrate DHs birthday by going to dinner with his parents at a hibachi restaurant, should be fun.
I also have 2weeks left of leave. I plan on going to the gym daily with a friend and going to the presidential library. also I have my anual exam and laser hair removal. the nanny is coming over tomorrow for a dry run. this saturday my family is coming andwe are going to the lake.
But we did stuff outside this weekend, I took my son strawberry picking, and we went to the local children's museum for a playdate today for my last day. I churned up strawberry ice cream and made strawberry lemonade. I plan to go to bed early tonight. (I work from home tomorrow so it will be a better transition.)
I had an eye appt today, we are going to do free movie tomorrow, clean all day Wednesday, Thursday the girls both have eye appts and jaxon has his 2 month check up, Friday I have a friends wedding rehearsal, Saturday is the wedding and I have my best friends little girls bday that day too. I am also getting back into my exercising routine this week and cooking more again.
Tomorrow is my sons class party. I am volunteering which requires me dragging the 2 youngers with me. Alex will just hang in the sling and Lilli will get to be a pretend kindergartner. It'll be fun. Wednesday is his last day of school. Thursday is summer reading kickoff party at our library. Friday we are having a lunch date at our dinner theater to see Monsters U. I feel like starting right now until school starts at the end of August we are b.u.s.y. Summer is going to FLY!!
What do your kids do while you're working from home?
Tuesdays they are both home. My son watches Sesame Street and Daniel Tiger from 10-11:30. The rest of the time I try to redirect him with books or drawing or eating. Ingrid eats and pretends to nap. Fridays will be just her, so I can keep her on my lap to eat while I work and I'll be spending a lot of time trying to get her to keep quiet. When she sleeps it is fine, but she spends a lot of time being cranky and refuses to be entertained, so it's a little tough.
