Back To Work: 21 Days & Counting.

I'm back to work in 21 days. I suppose I could just say 3 weeks, but that seems too quick for me. Don't get me wrong, I am ready to get back to working full time, really, really ready. But I have a lot to do between now and then to get everything lined up so my family doesn't fall apart once our days get a lot fuller.

Part of the transition is getting Cameron used to daycare. We lucked out and a spot opened up for her at Max's daycare. Good thing too because I didn't bother getting her on the wait list anywhere else. I didn't have the emotional energy to deal with yet another childcare centre, and I just had faith that it would all work out. I mean, something has to go our way now and again, right?
Since today was Cam's first day, I opted to just visit with her and not leave her. Everyone was outside when we got there, so I plopped her in the sandbox and chatted with her new teachers. Cameron, ever the lady, promptly took the other child's shovel and pail away from him. I guess after months of having Max take her toys away from her, she figured it was payback time. Max was also outside in the Toddler playground during my visit, and he wasn't quite sure what to make of the fact that I was in the Baby playground.

Tomorrow will be the true test as I'm going to leave Cameron (gasp) and go run errands for a few hours. I suspect after tearing my heart out with her wails of desperation upon my leaving she'll be just fine. In fact, I'm willing to bet she'll be all smiles until I return, when she'll promptly turn on the waterworks for my benefit. That's my girl.
