Today's Bath

Mark was giving the baby a bath today in between conference sessions. Right at the beginning he called in to me and asked if I could watch the baby because as he was bringing the baby to the bath, the baby peed and Mark needed to clean it up. While I was keeping an eye on the baby, he was making serious business face. I told Mark that the baby was going to poop and said that the baby knew better than to poop in his tub. I came back to checking FB when Mark calls out that the baby pooped in his tub and that he needed help. Mark pulled the baby out of the tub and held him over the other side of the sink while I dumped the poopy water down the main sink. Our kitchen sink was full of poop water. So gross. I had to clean the baby tub, the sink, and Mark had to rebath the baby. We ended up missing the first 30 minutes of the last session of General Conference because of this fiasco. It was funny but horribly gross.
This was one of his first baths at home and in the same sink tub.

I have been crying on and off for the last week. I have to go back to work on Monday. I originally thought I had to go back today, but my HR has me back Monday, which I'm okay with. I think I am going to cry all day Monday missing my baby. It will also be hard to adjust to waking up early again.

For over 5 years now I have been eating dinner at about 11pm with Mark. Now that I'm not going to be able to take naps after work, I don't know how the dinner situation is going to work. I hope I will still be able to see my husband during the week.

As much as I am going to miss my baby and this is going to be hard, I think it is going to be good as well. Mark and the baby will be able to bond which wouldn't have happened if Mark were to be working the 2 jobs. Also, I don't think that I could take care of the baby completely by myself Monday through Friday. I think I would literally go crazy so it's probably better this way.

Wish our family luck for next week when our schedules change and get back to serious business.

Preface and Prologue

I have decided to start a blog. The reason for this is so that I can post whatever random thoughts and sentiments I would like to get off my mind. The medium of a blog is such that I can post these random things and don't have to worry about annoying anyone. If you don't like what I post, don't read my blog. With that in mind, feel free to follow my blog and enjoy.
