It is not ironic that as an A type personality I literally would have my day scheduled.  To the 15 minute block when I was in my previous job.  Some days I would have to schedule a bathroom break as to not get that slot filled.  Now I loved what I did, managing multiple fundraising programs, staff people in multiple locations and getting to see the amazing reward of the patients/survivors and their families.

My life is scheduled in a different way now. It revolves around diaper changes, feeds and naps.  Throw in a few wardrobe changes for good measure depending on how the feeds and diaper changes went.  Today I tried 4 times to sit down and write this blog but it just wasn’t happening…someone else required my undivided attention and since we have started teething and are not always a happy camper I obliged.

Time is something that some individuals sell and of course something that we all wish we could have more of.  So for tonight the laundry will have to wait to get folded–hey it got washed and dried that’s huge, the emails that aren’t urgent will sit in the inbox and this mama is going to enjoy her couch, a warm blanket and the video monitor watching that amazing little girl all snuggled in her crib.

Tonight’s nursery rhyme…

To paidi to kalo
tha to stilo sto sxoleio
gia na mathei pragmata
pragmata spoudamata
tou Theou ta pragmata

The child, the good
I’m going to send him/her to school
to learn things
important things
God’s things

A little ditty about Jack and Diane...no really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.
