Drive By Post

So I couldn't be busier but blogging has been on my mind so I carved out some time today to type this quick post.  For starters, I got a new job!  After this work crap, I found a position that sounds great and I start tomorrow!! YIKES.  It's quite weird for me to be going someplace else for work after I have been at the same company for 17 years but I'm ready.  It was an extensive hiring process and took five weeks but I think my timing was perfect.  I have to admit Friday was a sad day at my old job.  Lots of tears but this is absolutely the right decision for me and my family.

In other news,the babies have gone backwards in the night time sleep department.  I'm blaming it on this -
The Dynamo has teeth!

Sweet Potato has been waking up a lot at night too and no teeth yet for him.  I feel like it's back to the newborn stage and find giving them a bottle is the only thing that calms them to go back to sleep.  And I do give them bottles before bed.  I tell ya starting a new job with no sleep is not going to be fun but what's a (single) girl to do! 

The Dynamo is a little army crawler and I got the baby gates up just in time.  He gets up on his knees and rocks too.  Sweet Potato scoots a little bit on his fanny and on his belly he goes around in circles or backwards so I think it's just a matter of time for him.  

Sweet Potato and I have swim lessons this month twice a week (unlike last session with the Dynamo where it was only once each week for eight weeks) and he seems to really like it!  I get big smiles from him all the time.

I have a lot of other posts brewing in my head and hopefully I can find (make) time to post them.  I have been keeping up with all of your blogs and I know I have a few blog awards to acknowledge.  Thank you for those!  Happy June!


  1. Congrats on the new job! I hope you LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!!! And It sounds ever exciting on the homefront... they are growing so much!!!

  2. Teeth! A new job! This is all so exciting! So good to hear from you. I hope you can get a good night's sleep sometime very soon. Best of luck with the new job. I'm really psyched for you!

  3. Congrats on the new job! Teething is so hard! And it seems never ending. I know one day teething and diapers will be a thing of the past, and then we'll probably miss this time. But how cool it will be to have deep conversations and go places without strollers!

  4. You are my Shero. You have so much on your plate and dealing with it. You found a new job, twins. You go girl!!!

  5. Congratulations on the new job. Love the teeth. He's so cute.

  6. Thanks for the update. So hopeful for your new job, what a refreshing relief! I'm glad to hear swimming lessons are a hit, I'm excited to try that out!
