This morning, for the first time ever, I took Avery to a babysitter. wahhhhhhhhh!
It’s really not tooo horrible, because her new “sitter” is my very good friend Trish. And Avery loooooves her Miss Trish, so I know she’s having a fun time without Mommy today!
Still, it’s very strange… after being a SAHM for over 6 years, it feels totally bizarre to NOT have a child here in the house with me today! (Although, I have to admit, I AM enjoying it!!).
I’ve been extremely busy with editing work lately… I can’t force myself to turn the work down because we need the money, Lord knows. But, it’s getting more and more impossible to get my work done with a child, or two, underfoot. And my stress level has been through the roof lately, as a result.
So, I asked Trish if she would be interested in keeping Avery for me two days a week.
When I woke Avery this morning, she was hesitant to wake up (because she’s her mother’s child! lol). But as soon as I said, “Do you wanna go see Miss Trish?” the girl literally JUMPED out of bed, all smiles.
So, now, I guess I need to get to work and try not to wonder what dear Avery is doing. Sigh.
