This of course means that my REAL real job as Sadie's mommy has taken a time cut by 30 hours per week. I have one day off during the work week to spend with her, and I appreciate our home time together that much more because of this new schedule we are transitioning into. We stay close to home, run fewer errands and take naps together. We eat cheerios and walk down the lane to the mailbox at a pace of her choosing. We try on shoes. We hide in closets and read books over and over and over. I breathe in her smell and realize she is growing further and further from her babyhood everyday.Our day comes but once a week, and I don't take one second of it for granted.

I've been back at work for about a month now - back to my real job, one that does not involve koopoppeting. Not that Koo & Poppet isn't real or fulfilling or time-consuming, but it was just time for me to return to the professional world. I must admit, it feels good to wear nice clothes everyday and actually do my hair, as so much of this last year was spent in sweats and sloppy pony tails. It also feels good to show up for work on a regular schedule, put my education and background to good use, and earn an income again. But I have hired someone to help with the Koo & Poppet production, so business moves forward as usual and on task!
