Nervous

I report to the hospital this morning for work - I'll be working a regular 40 this week to get much of my training in. Soooo, hopefully that means Bob experiences all the hijinks and fun living at home and I have nothing to write about.

Except that it really irritates me that in order to plan for today, I was up late packing lunches, preparing tonight's dinner to stick in the 'fridge (Jacob's teacher is coming tonight - great timing, eh), pack up Jack's diaper bag, snacks, etc. and then think about what I was going to wear today.

If I were Bob, I would have tucked the kids into bed, gone to sleep and got up and taken care of myself. Oh, to be a man - at least a man in my 1950s style household. Mama's throwing away her apron. Wish me luck.

You go girl. Don't worry, you'll do fine. I bet you are looking fab this morning too.

Try, really try to let the thoughts of the home/kids/etc. go for the 40 hours.

PS Show Bob how to pack lunches *wink*

Hope your morning is off to a great start! Make yourself a stiff drink when you get home and you'll feel more like a 50's man.

PLEASE, PLEASE let me know how many guys you see in ER with a four hour erection from ODing on Viagra. THIS I got to know.

I'm already dreaming of the day when I don't have to make up lunch and organise a nappy bag. Ellie's only 19months old. I've got a lot of lunches ahead of me.

A man CAN pack diaper bag. I've been training Recaro one item at a time. I leave a different item out each time it's his time to take Ellie to the childminder. It's not nagging if I only ask him to do one thing. One day I'll 'forget' to do it and will breezily say, 'Oh you don't mind packing her bag do you? You've done it all before'.

What could possibly go wrong?

Good luck. Hope you enjoy shooting the breeze with all those new people.

I hope that all went well today.

And yes, it seems that you can never really "win." But you are getting pretty darn close!

Jen, you don't need luck, you are already amazing. Hope you had fun, too.

Don't be surprised if you're asleep before the kids every night this week.

I'm sure it will all go well....let go and allow him the full experience though, DON"T pack the lunches...he or they can do it. And if they don't do it right what is the worst thing that will happen? They'll be hungry for a couple hours?
