This week we had a nice and quiet week which worked perfectly for me, and was what I hoped for since I’ve been participating in the HoHoHo Readathon. And I did pretty good with that one (check out my blog tomorrow for the roundup). 

On Wednesday it was time for our baby girl to have her first 2.5 hour try-out in the day care where she will be going one day a week when I have to go back to work. I was dreading that day all week. The idea of leaving my baby girl with complete strangers was just horrible. But thankfully, from the moment we came in they were all very nice and comforting. As a welcome baby girl got the ‘Guess How Much I Love You’ book. As a book blogger and reader this was the perfect gift obviously and I felt a little better. After an introduction, I had to leave. Leaving was really really hard, but I went to my work where I hadn’t been in months which gave me the perfect distraction. At 12.30 p.m. I could pick her up again and she did great. Sigh.. Next Wednesday she has to go for 5 hours, and the week after it’s going to be all day. Definitely some hard times for this new mommy, but I know it has to be done and hopefully I’ll get used to it someday. 

Friday I went to my sister in law and her little girl. We had a nice time. So fun to see baby girl reacting to her little niece for the first time. 
And today, Saturday we’re celebrating my grandma’s birthday at my moms house. It will be fun to see the whole family again.

Reading wise I had a great week with some great reads. I still bought way to many books, but I figure that when I get back to work at the 26th I’ll probably won’t have time to buy more for a while. At least that’s what I tell myself! LOL!!

Only one more week in my maternity leave to go and I’ll be enjoying every minute of it. My husband took time off from work as well, so we are going to enjoy time as a family before we have to get used to our new routine of me working again. Can you tell I’m struggling with the idea a little? LOL!! It will be okay.. I hope.

  1. Taking kids to daycare is hard, sending wishes your way that it goes smoothly for you and her. Glad it started out well. :)

    Happy birthday to your grandma too! Glad the HoHoHo went well for you- I was gonna do that one and just ran out of time and didn't pick out my Christmasy type books. Oh well, maybe next time. :)

  2. That's hard having her stay with others. I think I only went to daycare when I was three. But I'm glad they're nice people there :)

    1. It's definitely hard. But since she was born three weeks early, I already got more time at home with her than planned. But still.. it's hard.
      Happy Reading!

    1. I sure hope so. It's still hard to just trust people you don't really know with the most important 'thing' in the world to me. But I just have to keep reminding myself it's good for her to be around other kids. :)
      Happy reading.

  7. The first day I took my daughter to daycare I stayed the entire day. I couldn't leave her. She was only 6 weeks old. She went 2 days a week for the first 2 weeks and then 4 days a week after that for the first year. She slept 10-12 and 3-5 every day. A great sleeper.

    I hope this last week is great. I also did HoHoHoRAT. Try to fit in some reading! Anne - Books of My Heart

  8. Happy birthday to your grandma. I’m glad the readathon went well. Hopefully the baby enjoys daycare. I don’t have kids, but I can imagine that leaving them would be challenging. Have a good week!

    1. Thanks AJ. It's definitely challenging to take my baby to day care. But since I have to work to be able to give her everything I want.. I just have to remind myself it's for a good cause. LOL!
