I Don't Want to Work

After 3 days off, allowing for an extra day with Elliot, I found it extremely hard to go to work yesterday. Since he was born all I have wanted was to be able to stay home with him. I know we can't afford it and we are lucky that Tony works nights bartending and can care for him during the day so Elliot isn't in day care (huge money saver) but I still want to be the one home. I feel like I miss so much and I don't get enough time with him.

Thankfully, Tony just headed off to NYC for 2 days to see the Yankees play and the sitter lined up couldn't do today after all, so I took another day off to be with Elliot!!!! The sitter will be here tomorrow, like every Wednesday, so I will be back to work.

Tomorrow is going to be sooooo hard. Maybe we can win the lottery soon and I can stay home!


  1. I am right there with you. I need to work so I can have some adult interactions but when I am there I just want to be home with A. I like to think that working makes me appreciate her more.

  2. I'm totally in the same boat as you are! I hate, hate, hate going to work every morning. Especially now that he's started his seperation anxiety, I feel like I'm abandoning him sometimes. At least my mom watches him in the day, so I don't have to worry about some stranger... but I still wish I was home with him RIGHT NOW.
