BACK TO WORK

Dealing with an unexpected first year and the subsequent depression and anxiety caused me to be on medical leave from work for a few months longer than my pre-baby plan. The school district agreed to give me my position back in the same elementary library but I had to spend time this month doing work hardening. Thankfully the young teacher who has filled in for me in the library while I've been gone is a little spitfire! I have been so blessed that I haven't had to worry about a thing while I've been gone.

Together we have come up with a plan for the library for next year. My job during this work hardening period has been to a) be okay being apart from Lauren and b) purge. I love throwing things away. I'm almost done a big reorganization of the library but I thought I would share a few VHS tapes that I purged from the collection. There were some doozies.

Ewww...

 A decade later...

I don't know if this would entice anyone to pick up yo-yoing...
And my fave (I think I yelled out loud a bit when I saw this one)...


Oh my gosh.

I signed Lauren up for daycare today for September. At first Matt and I were a bit nervous about it and tried to figure out a way to have her cared for by family members but seeing Lauren around other kids in the last few weeks has made me feel much more comfortable with her going to daycare. I think she will really enjoy it! The daycare that she is signed up for is quite small and has a very good adult to child ratio. Also, all of the children are under the age of 3 which is nice (big kids are so... big). She will start to go in the end of August when they have gradual entry to allow the children (and parents) to get used to the daycare. It is also nice that my schedule at work will allow me to start my day a bit later because Lauren typically wakes up between 8:30 and 9 in the morning. She's got a teenager's sleeping schedule already!

  1. Congratulations Amanda on your return to work and being able to put Lauren in daycare! I know you've worked hard to get to this point. I was glad to read that you get the same position back. I'm sure that will make it easier. Praise the Lord for continuing to answer so many prayers.
