Working Mom....that's me!!!

I don't have a lot of time, Adalynn is napping, dishes are calling, eye appointment at 1:30, followed by work at 3:00....yes, you read correctly, work at 3:00

After 17 months of staying home, I went back to work a few weeks ago. We had been toying with the idea and financially something had to give-so off I went. Well, I wasn't really looking, but just happened to see that Broderick's school was in need of a director for their before and after-school program. So I work a few hours in the morning and then go back for a few  in the afternoon (more specifically 7-9 a.m. and 3-6 p.m.). My neighbor is watching them on the days John is not home and the best part is that I get to be home ALL DAY LONG---well, for the most part....

We are slowly, VERY SLOWLY adjusting, With me working so late in the afternoon, dinner has been moved back by an hour (and John is fixing it every weeknight). We also have to wake the kids up about an hour earlier than before, so things are sometimes a little crazy at 6:30 a.m. in the Frye house with 5 people getting ready, attempting to eat breakfast, and get to work/school/babysitter's house and not be late. Some mornings are better than others.

I have pictures to post of Camden's final soccer game and award's party, Broderick's HUGE (500+ people) football banquet, and a few random photos of our princess (who is slowly realizing her role), but that will have to wait. The dishes are now shouting, Adalynn won't be sleeping much longer, and my eye appointment-yes, still for the Uveitis looms ever closer.

I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving. We are looking forward to NO TRAVELING and John's sister and nephew visiting. Until then, 

Many Blessings,


  1. Sounds busy! I think it's like that for so many of us right now, I wish life could just slow down a little for everyone! And what a blessing to have a cooking husband : ) I love that you say Adalynn is just realizing her role as princess...sounds right! Trust me, there are two living in our house! Can't wait for pictures. Lots of love from our hearts to yours, take care!!!

  2. Congrats on the new job! It sounds like the hours are just right. Looking forward to seeing the pictures. Take care!

  3. The job sounds like great hours, except for the early morning thing. I can't imagine getting all those kids ready so early!!! Blog when you can, but we'll understand! Have a great holiday season!!! : )
