First Day of Work
So I managed to survive my first night of work. 12 hours of Labor and Delivery. The night started out fine. The first delivery was at 10:30 p.m. It was amazing. I am glad I took this job. It reminds me of Gods 'little' miracles. My favorite part of the job is when the early morning hours roll around and all the moms are sleeping and all the babies are in the nursery. Part of my job is to comfort the babies should they become fussy. So at 3 a.m I was rocking away with two day old twins. It was a great baby fix. My second wind hit me and I made it to 6 in the morning when I could make the chilly walk back to my car and head home to my girls and hubby (who gave me a quick kiss and was out the door to his job). I managed to sit on the couch and relax a bit until 10 a.m. when both girls laid down next to me and we all took a much needed nap. We all woke up and had lunch and then I made my way to the laundry room where loads of laundry were waiting. This is the part where I need to remember that just because I am a working mom, it does not mean I can slack on everything that needs to be done at home... my biggest challenge is to make sure I do it with a smile. It wouldn't be fair for anyone if I came home and was grumpy all day... especially the girls.
So now hubby is home.. dinner has been eaten.. the girls are in bed... and I am ready to pass out! That being said....
