There's a weird phenomenon that happens to the daytime hours when little ones are involved. That 7ish hours during school? It's really only a couple of hours long here in the Momzone. Seriously! A year ago when we decided to put Noble in daycare so I'd have time to work, I was shocked at how fast the day went...and at how little "work" time I'd actually have during the school day. I'd finally adapted to it and worked my office hours around to maximize the time and I think I was doing pretty well. Of course, that just meant it was time for a change, right?

I thought the days were going to be so LONG, chasing him around 24/7 instead of just 17/7. :) But here's what's funny...the same Momzone time phenomenon applies here, too. Yes, now Noble's here with me from 7:45 AM-3:30 PM instead of at daycare. But of that time, he's asleep a couple of hours, he eats a little, we play a lot, we might run an errand or two...but that's it. The days are just flying by. It's a little bittersweet, to tell you the truth. I'd prepared myself for long, arduous days...and it turns out, there's not nearly enough playtime as far as I'm concerned.

Huh. Who'd have thought?
