Today is my nanny’s first day, yay! I have waited for this day for a very VERY long time. There are some things that I need to get done that are nearly impossible with a newborn hanging over your shoulder. And don’t get me wrong, I love Aidan to pieces, but I am really looking forward to going back to work. I may have told you this already but I always thought I would have a hard time returning to work after having a baby. I thought I would want to be a stay-at-home mom and although we couldn’t afford our mortgage if I stopped working, I did fantasize about playing baby all day long. But after being elbow deep in diapers and onesies, Sesame Street and tummy-time, stroller walks and car seat naps–I am ready to hand my son off to someone else!

I also really like what I do for a living and I miss going into the office every day. It did get tiresome towards the end of my pregnancy because I was this big fat blob waddling up and down the hallways from the kitchen to my cubicle, back to the kitchen and to the restroom–over and over again. But now that I have officially lost all of my baby weight (yay me!) I am ready to go back to work.

I also did some re-inventing of my womanhood since Aidan was born. I got my hair turned to a platinum blonde and am working on growing it a bit longer. I also got a solid tan going since I have been walking Aidan and Cali on a daily basis. I highly recommend having a baby in the early summer months so that you are motivated to work out and look your best. I know I did!

Once the nanny got here, I showed her where everything baby was located, nursed Aidan and then handed him off to his new best friend so that I could indulge in one of my guiltiest pleasures–a long hot shower. I don’t know what the rest of the day will hold for me, but what I do know is I can do whatever I want and I don’t have to worry if Aidan’s needs are being met. I know he is in good hands and frankly, he knows it too. The minute he saw the nanny this morning, he smiled and laughed out loud.
