It's Wednesday & I would be normally just settling into my desk at work..  BUT, since I'm doing my new work schedule, I'm cozy on the couch, watching Reese play in her bouncy seat while Cam still snoozes.  Normally we'd have woken Cam up nearly an hour ago so that we could get out the door on time. I'm SO incredibly thankful to have this day with my kids.  I know there are plenty of working moms, but it's sometimes strange to think that someone else is raising my kids.  They're at daycare from 8am-6pm = 10 hours per day = 50 hours per week.  I'm with them for about 2.5 hours per day Monday-Friday = 12.5 hours per week and then all day Saturday & Sunday which is about twelve hours per day = 24 hours for a grand total of about 36.5 hours per week.  Which means the daycare teachers are with them for over thirteen more hours a week than I am!  Whew.

So, I'm going to enjoy this day, which happens to be a beautiful one. Maybe we'll take a walk & go to the park?  Maybe we'll head to the outdoor mall & walk around?  The world is our oyster!
