It's been awhile since we've had a check in. How are you doing back at work? How many hours a week are you working? Has your baby adjusted? Are you happy with how things are going?

Back to school now. Full-time. I actually resigned from an extra committee that I was part of because I want to get home to Madalyn! I know she's well taken care of and safe since she's with my mom during the day. Definitely puts my mind at ease, but I still miss her like crazy!!

Working about 25hrs a week since thanksgiving. It's going well. I'm pumping 2-3 times while I'm there. I seem to get more and more every week!! Jett's adjusting great to day care. I really like the teacher he has taking care of him. All in all it's going well.

I just started back to my general music job today. It is the only one of my three jobs that truly feels like a JOB... I'm really good at it, but it isn't as perfect of a fit as my other two jobs. I come home drained from my general music job, and come home energized from my other two jobs. The general music job is 9:30-11:30 on Thursday mornings. It was really hard for me to get both boys dressed and fed and me looking professional! I got out the door on time, but missed breakfast. Setting the alarm earlier next week. The day went fine, but I can tell this is going to be a challenging group of students, particularly my ALL BOYS 4-6th grade class. Jamison did well with my mom... I'm thankful that he takes a bottle well. My boobs felt like they were going to explode by the time I got home!

I'll start back to my private voice students next Wednesday- that job is easy for me, because the boys are home with Daddy, and it is in the evening, so a lot of the time I'm away is dinnertime, meaning they don't really miss me too much.

My Music Together class will start on the 18th, and I'm actually really looking forward to that, because my Mom is going to bring the boys to participate in the class!

I work full-time and Wednesday was my first day back & Madilyn's first day in daycare. So far, everything is going smoothly. She has done well in daycare & has actually started going to bed before 1am the past 2 nights---I hope this continues! I still miss the heck out of my babies though and 4pm can never come soon enough!

**Thank you Jaidynsmum for my beautiful siggy!**

I've been back since 11/30 working about 25hrs a week. Although I've had the past 2 weeks off for school winter break, so I've been somewhat spoiled in not having to get up early. I was supposed to return back on Wednesday but bronchitis, sinus infections, and gallbladder attacks have bought me a little extra time at home.

I have to have the baby at daycare by 6 am every morning in order to get to work to run with the platoon by 620. It is hectic and every morning I forget something at home, whether it be my combat boots, breast pump, or uniform all together. Good thing Grant works in the same building but leaves after me so I call him to gather what my absent mind has forgotten. Starting this week the other 4 kids start at a new daycare that he will have to get off in the morning. Its crazy but we are making due.

Work is fine but I sure miss my baby girl and I am really struggling with the pumping. I pump every 2 hours...and I get only 2 oz each time I pump and that is TOTAL from both breasts. I am still nursing in the morning, night and weekends though so we are working on it. We had to break down and supplement with formula though

I'm here. I'm doing okay. I am still the work a holic but I'm missing her like crazy I've been pulling over 103+ hours every two weeks, this week I've only did 2 hours of OT outside my normal shift but I am working 3 hours on my day off on Saturday lol

My meds I take have been helping a lot and getting me through the day. I still wish I can be a sahm vs my husband being a sahd
Thank you *Sharon* for the siggy

I've been back to work full-time since November the week after thanksgiving. It hasn't been too bad, an adjustment at nights especially since dh works 2nd shift and i'm alone with the kids trying to make dinner, and other normal night time stuff. But we're getting into a groove. Hunter has adjusted okay I think, there's some days where he's in a pissy mood, then fine when I get home.
