Better than expected

Family Parenting Uncategorized

As many of you know I was dreading the month of October for a number of reasons.  My mat leave was ending, my baby was turning 1 and starting daycare, I was going back to work and my mother was getting results from her CAT scans.

It was a whirlwhind of activity over the past couple of weeks and I’m happy to report, I MADE IT!!!

Yesterday was a day of many firsts…it was my sons first full day of daycare and he had an amazing day.  I got up early, got myself and the two boys ready, fed and to school.  I went in to the office for my first day of work.  I picked up both boys on time, managed to prepare dinner before there was any crying of hunger, got them both bathed and ready for bed and all before 630pm.

I DID IT!!!  The dreaded ‘first day’…the day I wasn’t prepared for and didn’t know if I could handle.  But I did, albeit exhausted!

I am also happy to report that my moms scans all came back clear.  She is doing well and that is all that I can ask for.

So, October wasn’t really so bad.  Its funny that when we don’t know what to expect, we fear the worst.

But I will say, that I give kudos to all the working  moms out there who manage to do it all.  I hope that I can exceed my own expectations!!

What have you feared that has turned out better than expected?

For the last 7+ years I have immersed myself in the "mom life". My blog, appropriately named Me, Myself and Kids is my life; the challenges, the laughter, and the tears. But I also offer my own version of motherly advice. In doing so, I’ve designating myself as an MD or “Mom Doc”. Not because I know it all. Don’t get me wrong. It’s an open perspective; my learnings shared so you can take the good, bad and ugly and adapt it to your own family life. So please join me as I share all of the crazy and overwhelming thoughts and experiences of the mom life with Me, Myself and Kids.
