February the 5th - "D Day"

Well today is February the 5th - you might ask why that is so important.  Well it is two months after I started back to work after having the twins.  Ryan and I agreed that I would try to work for at least two month before making the decision whether or not to stay at home with the kids or try to be a working mom to 4!  It has not been easy to say the very least.  There have been good days, hard days, really hard days, and bad days.  We have adjusted a few things around to try to make things better, and I would say each day is a learning opportunity.  I am working a flexible schedule - 7:30 to 2:00 in the office, and we have hired a nanny.  My schedule allows me to pick up Taylor from school, and the nanny allows me to keep my sanity! 

I actually work for the worlds greatest company.  Actually our mission is to be "the earth's favorite food company."  Which says a lot for the culture of the company.  It is a pretty awesome company, and my boss rocks.  I work really hard and they have treated me very good.  I could not think of a better place to work.  I am pretty sure that if I worked any place else that I would not have gone back to work after the babies were born.  Right now my decision is to continue working and to be a working mom of four.  Hopefully by doing so I can still be the kind of mom that my kids need me to be.

Congrats on your decision. Glad things are a little more routine. You are an inspiration!
