It's Official!

So my boss, Mandie, called me today, and as we were talking she said, "so are you coming back three days?" I had hinted at this before my leave, but we weren't sure with everything. I have planned childcare for me working 3 days, but I hadn't told them at work. So I answered her "YES" and just felt relieved. I'm not sure why this was such a big deal for me. I think this was a good moment for me. Instead of being sad and pouty about going back to work, I am thanking God, (and my husband!) that I will be working 3 days and be home with my girls the other 2. I have really enjoyed being home. The past couple of weeks I have really gotten in a good groove of things with taking care of the girls, cleaning house, and cooking dinner. Now let me assure you that not all those things happen daily- well except for the girls part! I really think I could be a SAHM and enjoy it. I know it wouldn't be easy- I have a high respect for those that do it!
So today, I have put on 100 different outfits on Barbie Princesses, cut out 1000 circles for a butterfly art project, listened/watched Dora, bounced a baby back to sleep after wakening up from a loud noise courtesy of her sister, changed 10 dirty diapers, changed my shirt 2x from spit up and/or drool, planned birthday parties, folded laundry, fixed breakfast and lunch, provided several meals for Ansley, and tried to plan dinner. I feel extremely blessed, and I can't wait to do this on a part time basis!
I also feel extremely blessed to love what I do professionally! I am ready to see my kiddos! I have missed them.
