Keeping In Touch......

Where has the time gone?
Sophie is 8 months old now and doing really well!
I have finally come to accept that while I am home looking after her I am just not going to find the time to blog and comment as much as I would like!
I also accept I have very little to blog about when sometimes the highlight of my day is a particularly comical nappy and when we do something blog worthy (which of course we do!) there is no time to tell you about it or its so long after the event it feels pointless!

All that is to change soon though..................I have to go back to work! 

While I'm devastated at the thought of leaving my precious little girl at nursery while I head of to work I know that for now, that is what I'm going to have to do.  My head tells me she will enjoy the time with other children and my shift work means we will still get to spent lots of time together but my heart is screaming that she is too little and I'll never get this time back.
I guess I'm just not ready for the next stage!
With that in mind I decided to take the opportunity to complete a few 'keeping in touch days' at work. 
KIT days seemed a good Idea to enable me to put a few things in motion for my return and get to grips with leaving Sophie for a few hours without having a nervous breakdown!

I hate leaving the house in the morning, knowing I'm not going to be there when she wakes up and miss her all day but I have surprised myself at how productive I feel when I don't have a small person around!
I'm not quite as scared about returning to work as I was before and the smiles I get when I get home make it all worth it!!!


Lots of Love

Isn't she gorgeous. Sometimes however hard it is I think it's good for kids to mix with other kids as it gives them confidence to join in with things....she'll love it,Lucey x

I can't believe she's already 8 months! It'll be hard to leave her, the KIP days sound goo :) xx

It's really hard at first - but leaving the little one means that the time you do have together is even more precious! I have been back at work for 3 weeks now ...and now we have our routine it is all working out well. I can't wait for Fridays though when I have the day off!

Oh how big Sophie is getting and oh that precious face. What a wonderful smile to come home to. I'll be thinking of you and know that everything will be just fine. God's blessings to you and your precious family.

Hugs,
