I had to go back to work this week. I have been so lucky to be furloughed and spend all day with Tatton but it all came to a sad end when I got the call. Monday was my first day back and it was soo hard. I thought for sure that going back this time wouldn't be as hard as it was when Tatton was about 4 months. I was wrong, it was even harder. I guess because he is turning into more of a little boy with a big personality, it's harder to leave him knowing that he is now aware of what's going on? I don't know. Either way I don't like it. I used to work 5-9 am and left him with Aaron in the mornings and then when I got home Aaron left for work. Now that we're living in Morgan we were, well I was, kind of hoping that I wouldn't get called back this season (yeah right) because we knew it would be a tougher schedule to pull off. So we finally arranged for me to work 5-10 am, notice the extra hour (Aaron says that makes it worth driving down everyday). Aaron stays home with Tatton until he wakes up, usually between 7 or 8, then he takes him down to his Mom's. So Grandma gets to play with Tatton for about 2 1/2 hours everyday, until I get home, which is wonderful. I am so very happy that Grandma is the one who takes care of our little guy. I couldn't ask for a better set up, and I shouldn't complain since I don't have to work full time, but I still miss being home, and miss Tatton. I've gotten used to waking up everyday cuddled with Aaron, and hearing Tatton chatting in his crib. I would get Tatton and feed him in bed and then all three of us would cuddle in our big, warm bed and play until Daddy had to go to work. Now I'm the one getting up early leaving while it's still dark and cold. It's sad. I can't wait to be furloughed again or until we move to Vegas so that I can always be home. I just love being a wifey and mommy too much! Thanks Goldie for taking care of us so that I can stay home as much as I do, love you, and Mary Sue for your BIG help with the little monster!
