Last week was a bit of a flop - we survived - but it was hard.
As I mentioned, Monday Paul worked from home. Well, on Thursday his boss calls him into a meeting and - long story short - he's not able to work from home like was previously agreed. They said that Friday was definitely out of the picture and they'd also prefer if he only worked every-other Monday at home and the other Mondays he just brought Evy into the office with him. This was a big blow to our plans and I'm still pretty upset by it.
With the next day being Friday - we were a bit frantic to find a babysitting solution. My sister was more than willing to watch her again, but with her having been there for three days that week already I felt it would be too much to ask. So, Paul asked his mother to come and watch Evy. It was a nice treat for everyone - however I'm not sure if we can count on that for every Friday. The drive between here & there is an easy hour and a half and that's with good traffic - plus with so much dependent on her transportation, if she has car troubles we're really out of luck. But, we're going to just take it one week at a time. This week Paul has Friday off - so that's a help.
Paul took Evy into work with him yesterday and I was sure that after her being there for one day they'd realize how unprofessional and disruptive it was to have a baby in the office. But apparently she was an angel. A big, relatively quiet, blue-eyed angel and she was more of a hit in the office than a hindrance. Plus, its only every other week so I'm thinking we'll probably just go with the flow just as we are with Fridays.
I always thought that having a kid would make me love structure even more - but it's actually helping me to release my need for so much structure and just take each day at a time :)
