I just became a stay at home mom 2 months ago. I have to say, it is a huge adjustment. After spending 7 years working full time in Child Protection, this is a whole new world. My sweet Lia is almost 2, she's my "little buddy". I have to admit it's a big adjustment for her as well. She's been in daycare fulltime since she was 10 weeks old. It has definitely been a challenge for her as well. I'll just say the road has been bumpy, but we're coming in to smooth sailing. I'm gonna make a big admission here....I LOVE nap time. I am vigilant about naps, she thankfully sleeps about 2-3 hrs each afternoon. Once she's down, I do my few little "chores", then I do the absolute unthinkable. I plop in front of the TV, pop open a diet pepsi and watch General Hospital. I love every minute of it. Not the soap necessarily, just the fact that I can do this. I figure I've worked in a very, very high stress job for 7 years, I've seen and experienced things you usually only read on front pages of the paper and then have nightmares about. I feel not one, single solitary ounce of guilt for my afternoon reprieve. It sure beats the hell out of getting a sticky note from the receptionist that says "dead baby....132 Dunwood Ln". I'll take GH, thank you very much.

First Timer

I've decided to take the plunge into the blogging world. Bear with me as I learn. I look forward to having a place to air my thoughts....and some other things when needed. Maybe I'll even be lucky enough to have a few comments...wink,wink. Stay tuned for more to come about life, Lia and whatever else comes to mind!!!!
