day in the life series

I mentioned last week that my maternity leave is almost over and I am having so many mixed feelings about it!  On one hand, I think that I will be ready to back to work.  I miss getting up at a set time every morning, having to get dressed and look presentable, socializing with adults, bringing home a paycheck, etc.  And most importantly, I absolutely love my job.  On the other hand, it stinks that Poppy and Sam are going to be at two different places (Poppy in school full time and Sam at the same home daycare Poppy went to) and it really stinks that I have to work full time.

Regardless of my mixed feelings about going back, I am so, so, sooooo grateful that I had the opportunity to stay home with my babies for two full years.  I know so many people that are not able to do that and I feel incredibly lucky to have spent so much time with my two favorite little people.  These two years, living our simple life at home, have been the best years of my life.  And I want to remember every single little boring detail during this time.  Blogging has definitely been on the back burner for me lately, but I am about to step it up with a little "day in the life" series.  I am going to try to snap a picture every day that really captures this period of time while the kids are still so little and our lives are so simple.  Having my time to just hang out with Sam while Poppy is at school every morning, having lunch with Poppy and Sam every.single.day, the way they play together, helping me make dinner every day, reading together, I want to remember it all before the pace of our lives picks up.  I won't be posting every day, but I really hope to take a picture every day until I go back to work...

Poppy's daycare.  "Shhhh, my children are sleeping mommy!"

Poppy Daycare - adorable! Are Poppy's books arranged by colour? Great idea if so. :)
