Balancing Work & Family

If you haven't figured it out yet, I am a high school science teacher.  Which means that I have the summers off.  It is a wonderful break and the time I get to spend with Eyan is amazing.  As with all things, they must come to an end.  So here we sit, mid-August and I am back at work.  My new job is pretty good.  I am still very much a newbie and learning how everything works.  Today I met most of my students and they are very polite.  However, this week has been a whole different world for me.

I think all working mom's have to deal with the careful balance of work and family.  I would like to consider myself a pretty balanced mommy.  I truly believe that my new job will aid in my ability to keep work at work so that I can dedicate my home time to my family.  So this week Eyan spent a lot of time with my mom and Jen (Eyan's babysitter).  I always send a camera so that when he is being the extra special kid he is, they can capture it on camera.  Enjoy the view from a working mom!

Lunch!

This is how my mom dresses Eyan when I tell her not to let him play in the dirt in his clothes.

Eyan found a girlfriend

So cute!

After a week of no family time, Mommy and Daddy took Eyan to get some Fish

He was SO excited!

He also got this vacuum to terrorize the dogs...best night ever!

I love the people that take care of Eyan.  My mom is incredible and she picks him up every morning.  Sometimes she keeps him for a few hours, sometimes she takes him directly to Jen's.  Jen is amazing.  She loves Eyan like her own.  He loves her just as much.  I couldn't be more blessed to have her take care of Eyan.  They make the balance of work and family so easy!
