It's Here!

The Jumperoo is here and all set up - I can't wait until the morning when the boys wake up to give it a spin...(ok, maybe I can wait...go ahead and sleep tight, babies!)

Also arriving with the jumperoo were a few new books for mommy - Super Baby Food by Ruth Yaron, See Jane Lead by Lois Frankel, Opting Out? by Pamela Stone and Top 1oo Baby Purees by Annabel Karmel.

The two baby food books are pretty obvious as to what they are about. I can't wait to dig in and start making food for my kiddos.

'Jane' is a book of '99 ways for women to take charge at work'. I thought it looked like a good one to help me get my working girl mojo back...I love the 'Nice Girls' series that Lois Frankel wrote, so I am pretty excited about it. The subtitle on 'Opting Out' is 'why women really quit careers and head home'. Call me the cat because curiosity is killing me on this one. Of course, there are so many obvious reasons, but I am interested to see if there are items for consideration on this that I haven't thought of yet.

I went to a women's meeting in the office this morning and I met two other new moms of singletons who have been back to work just a couple of weeks longer than me. When we were comparing notes and they asked me 'boy or girl?' I said with a smile 'two boys - I had twins'. They both seemed genuinely impressed and said a bunch of reallly nice things, like 'I don't know how you do it.' I thought to myself, you just do it...and I actually felt myself smile on the outside. I've been looking for some reassurance that I'm doing the right thing for me and my boys. Maybe that was a sign?

And if mommy is smiling - so are the boys! They have had a great week at school - they are eating cereal and playing and napping all as they should. Their teachers all say what amazing babies they are! It makes me proud.

Tomorrow is Freaky Friday! I pick up and Jon drops off. Too bad I have an early meeting or I could sleep in - boo! Oh well, such is life.

We have a big weekend planned...

Tomorrow night we are going to Granny's for Mardi Gras dinner and Saturday morning is the 'Steps for Students' 5k run/walk. It's a fundraiser to support the Catholic schools in our diocese - including the school the boys go to. I think it will be alot of fun.

Take care and I will update again soon!

Evan loves the Jumperoo, though he doesn't jump much yet. The toys are fascinating to him, though. And Rowan could care less about the thing. LOL

I get a lot of those, "how do you do it with two?" questions and they always make me feel good. But you're right, you just do!
