I made it through my first week back at work. It was hard. I'm exhausted. But, I made it.
Ellie decided that this would be an excellent week to revert to all her old (bad) sleeping habits. Wednesday night she woke up 7, count 'em, 7 times. That was awesome the next morning, let me tell you. Thanks sweetheart. Now we are back to square one at getting her to stretch out her nighttime sleeping. If anyone has any tricks or suggestions, I'm all ears.
As far as work itself, my students are pretty great. I'm getting to know them and haven't had any real issues with anyone so far. I've been able to fall back into the swing of things relatively easily, which is nice. It has just been very hard being away from Ellie for 10 or so hours everyday. I'm sure any other working mom out there understands.
