Maybe we Should Change the Company name to Brooks & Co.


So, yesterday was the dreaded day...I had to head back to the office after six wonderful weeks of playing stay at home mommy. I had such a wonderful time doing projects around the house, taking naps to catch up from sleepless nights and most of all, dedicating 100% of my time to my family. But, our reality is for me to work... and it really isn't all that bad. My colleagues and boss are totally supportive of me bringing Brooks to the office and in fact, Gary, my boss bought us an amazing pack n' play and a whole slew of things to put in the apartment connected to our office for me and the baby. We have a video monitor, so naps are really easy. Praise the Lord for an amazing baby. He is so well behaved and has already started to work with our new schedule, and it is only day 2.

As I type this, I am sitting at my desk with Brooks in the Bjorn and working away at the computer. With the exception of extreme fatigue after a meager 3 hours of sleep last night, I am feeling fine about our situation. Hopefully the mucus monster will go away soon, so we can all get a restful nights sleep.

Life has definitely changed as of Monday. I have so much new respect for stay at home and working moms alike. Both jobs are incredibly difficult, although, I think I got a lot more done when I was at home. :)

Becca and Brooks...
