Life as a stay at home Mom (sort of)

Well we are on week 2 of me only working part-time and staying home with the kiddos. It is going really well so far!! A typical day for us consists of waking up at 6:30 am (Harper), it USED to be 7:30 am but this stupid, gosh darn time change screwed THAT up!! Pax usually sleeps until 7:30 or 7:45, time change didn't affect him (I still hate it though and think it should be outlawed in all states!!!) We all get dressed and fed and I usually take the kids to work with me for a couple hours.I am able to put them in Kid Zone for up to 3 hours a day for FREE since I work there, it's a great deal. Harper had a hard time last week, everytime we went she cried the whole 2 hours and wanted held and if I HAPPENED to walk in front of the nursery and she saw me, oh holy hell she would scream!! This week it's been a lot better, she will actually get down on the floor and play, it makes work a lot easier for me cause I don't have to hear her screaming while I am working. Pax LOVES kid zone, they do crafts and play games and if it's nice they get to go outside on the playground. I think he still misses his daycare though cause he asks me every morning if he is going to Jenns :( We come home and have lunch and then the kids go down for a nap and I do some of this:

I would rather be doing this:

ESPECIALLY after this stupid, gosh darn time change!!! But it does feel great to be getting housework and laundry done everyday so that I don't feel so bogged (is that a word?) down on the weekends. But of course, the BEST thing about staying at home, is spending more time with theses little munchkins:

Today is our first time going to story time at the library. I have decided that Thursdays are going to be the day that I don't go into work at all. It's going to be our library and craft day and I am pretty excited about it, especially since I have to work Saturday night.
