So yesterday was my first day back to work after my maternity leave…. What was I thinking? Who goes back to work on HALLOWEEN? Crazy me!!
It was a very busy day. First I got up at 6 am to CURL my poker straight hair with this kick ass curling iron I was talked into buying:
Then, after getting the girls all ready, and scraping ICE off of my van, I dropped Amber and Brooke off at daycare pretty early in their halloween costumes – Brooke was Rapunzel, and Amber was a flower:
When I dropped Amber off she only cried for a second. I know this because I hid outside of her classroom door until she stopped crying 🙂 Brooke was a bit more reluctant to join her class, even though she has gone to our daycare for 3.5 yrs. I then joined the rat race to
drive sit in bumper to bumper traffic for 45 min until I eventually got to work. (I really need to find someone to carpool with so that I can split the cost of the gas I waste each morning.)
Unfortunately walking into work didn’t go as flawless as dropping the kids off did. I parked my van then grabbed all of my essential “stuff”:
- Electric Breast Pump
- Gym Bag
- and coffee
Afterwards the girls sorted through their candy, ate a little, then begged to go to bed – I guess they were as tired as me!
All in all it was a fairly good day – busy crazy and hectic, and lucky me… I get to join the rat race again today!
How do you handle the Halloween candy situation?
How much candy do you let you kids eat?
