Lady Luck

I have got to be one of the luckiest girls in he world. (Some days I need to remind myself, but it's true). I was really dreading going back to work and leaving my precious baby behind, but it has turned out okay. More than okay. Here's why: I only work 2 days a week, I'm off by 4pm, quality daddy-daughter time (Ryan gets up with her, feeds her, gets her dressed & drops her off, without me, the "expert", hanging over his shoulder telling him how to do everything), AND I have two wonderful grandma's (who I trust, who live close by, and who are FREE) to babysit! 

On MONDAYS, my mom watches Wendy. My favorite part of Monday's with Grandma Lamb is the fact that she brings Wendy to me on my lunch break! Mondays are a drag, but getting to see Wendy & feed her in the middle of the day helps me get through. Could my mom be anymore awesome? 

* Wendy LOVES it when Grandpa Williams plays music to her!
it melts my heart

On TUESDAYS, Bobbi & Larry watch Wendy. My favorite part about Tuesdays with "Grammie" is the fact that every Tuesday, when I go to pick up Wendy, Bobbi has a nice home-cooked meal all ready for me to take home to Ryan. Usually some great mexican dish! I feel so blessed to have such wonderful parents who help me out so much. I don't know what I would do without them. Probably have to leave Wendy with someone less than perfect OR move to some cheaper state, like Arkansas, so I wouldn't have to work.

You ARE a lucky lady. Your situation couldn't be any more ideal. I love the picture of Larry playing to Wendy. They say that classical music exposure to children and infants increases they brain function. I think exposure to some quality guitar riffs increases their coolness. Go Wendy!

Let's hear it for the working mommies! And Wendy is adorable. Melany and I are coming down for Christmas (with hubbies and babies). We should definitely meet up dude.

Your mom is so wonderful. Wendy isn't just being babysat, her life is being enriched. Hannah has such a special relationship with Joyce because those bonds were formed so early. Wendy will be the same way with her Grandmas.

Thank you1! YOu know Mondays are my favorite day of the week!

I LOVE the picture of Larry playing the guitar to Wendy, so sweet!

You are definitely lucky. I actually love working part time, but with no family around it's not worth it at all to pay for daycare x 2, so I stay home. Don't get me wrong. I don't hate staying home, but I do have my days where I wish my situation was more like yours. Anyway, I love that her grandpa plays the guitar to her. Both my boys love to listen to their daddy play. Something about lullabys on a guitar is so soothing.
