· Baby W hasn’t been sleeping well lately. He’s been a champion sleeper since about 6 weeks old. At roughly 3 months, he would sleep about 9 hours straight through the night. Until a month ago, he’d sleep 10 hours straight. But lately, he’s been waking up anywhere from 1-3 times. I think teething is to blame. It’s been rough and there have been many days I’ve felt like a zombie. But last night, he slept 9 hours straight… yes!!! I feel so refreshed!!
· When I interviewed for my current job, I wasn’t really looking for a new job… it just sort of happened. I agreed to the interview with the thought, “it can’t hurt; I’ll just see what this company has to offer”. I had reviewed the job description prior to interviewing and one of the items was training. That set off a big red flag. I’ve always been shy; I absolutely HATE speaking in front of a group. Just the idea of standing in front of colleagues gave me major anxiety. During the interview, I expressed concern regarding the training aspect of the job. It just wasn’t something I was interested in. Like at all. I wanted nothing to do with it. I was told not to worry, that there wouldn’t be much training, it was a very small part of the job. Fast forward 1.5 years and I’ve conducted at least 4 group training sessions (including one in Germany). I’m really proud of myself for conquering that fear and for following my heart when I accepted the job. It was a risky venture, but I’ve never been happier at work. I just hope the job satisfaction continues.
· I’ve always loved shopping, but I think I enjoy shopping for Baby W even more than I enjoy shopping for myself. I get giddy when I realize he needs new pajamas, a new sippy cup, a new sleep sack. I have a problem. The only thing I don’t really enjoy buying is food. J
· Per usual, I have to conclude with a picture of the cutest boy in town. I snapped this one last weekend and it’s one of my all-time favorites. Happy Friday!!
