My biggest concern was if it was wrong for us to remain in our pyjamas until 10am. It was difficult deciding if we should go to the library, the park, or visiting friends. To walk with the stroller, or take the car. I had the Treehouse daily schedule memorized, and particularly looked forward to Max & Ruby in the morning. Lunch was an exciting adventure, and two hour naps in the afternoon were a delight.
The change in lifestyle from "Stay at Home Mom" to "Working Mom" can best be defined by what one eats for breakfast:
Then: Granola & yogurt, waffles with syrup or toast with jam.
Now: Three Cheerios stolen off of Nora's highchair, one of which is mysteriously wet.
