March was quite a month, with me going back to work. The kids have been so sweet and my coworkers have been supportive and Mike packs my pump every morning and Atticus is sleeping through the night. So I can’t complain. But it was a long month. It was good to take note of the good things. If you made a list of good things, please post it in the comments!
March 1 – Visited Alisa at work.
March 2 – Had lunch with a new friend.
March 3 – I hung out at Mike’s school basically all day. The noise level made Atticus sleep. So he wasn’t cranky in the late afternoon. Hooray!
March 4 – Two good naps for Atticus and a nice walk in the afternoon.
March 5 – UNC beat Duke!
March 6 – Did nothing in anticipation of having to go back to work soon. NOTHING.
