My Time at Home

Today is my last day of my six week vacation/parental leave from Microsoft. This has been a great experience, I really feel like I have bonded with my daughter. I have to say that it took me about a week to get used to taking care of her everyday, but I pretty much have it down now, at least as good as I am going to get. I think I am going to miss being home with her everyday.

The last week has be great spending time with Hayden also since he has been off from school for winter brake. I was afraid it was going to be a lot more work taking care of both of them while he was home, but he was so helpful, and really was good that it was not an issue at all. He is such a good kid, but boy he does not stop talking, that is unless Dora is on.

I told Val before I started my leave that I was not sure if I could not work for 6 weeks, but somehow Evelyn filled everyday. I also had a great time while my mom was out visiting for two weeks, I don’t get to spend much time with her any more and being able to spend two weeks without being distracted by work was great.

So back to work tomorrow, I think I am ready :)
