all about the spence

^^^ epic smiles from mr. spencer b this morning


It’s been a fun week in the Moore household. On Monday, our babysitter decided to text me (yes, text me) and tell me she no longer wanted to work. I’d been working towards part-time hourly care on post anyway, so despite the fact that I was crazy annoyed, I was also relieved I didn’t have to fire her. Yesterday, the CYS on post called me during the three hours Spencer was in their care to tell me he wouldn’t stop crying and I had to pick him up.


Now, don’t get me wrong. I will always put my child’s needs above my own. That said, I was crazy frustrated, yet again, that it seemed someone couldn’t do their job when all I really want is to do my job(s) and do them well! Needless to say, I went and picked him up, and we had a fun day together. I did not, however, get any work done.


So, there’s that.


We’re interviewing new sitters because, while Spencer needs to grow accustomed to other people re: part-time childcare, I also relish having him at home, and that’s the ideal for me. How is it that this is so difficult?!


This sweet boy is almost 5 months old, and I just adore him. I love, love, love being able to work from home, but my goodness – it’s harder than ever!
