i didn’t forget anything. 
the loading area this AM.  
also yes: i buy toilet paper online and have it delivered.  i AM that lazy.
i made it to work before 9.
i pumped x 3 at work and with one more session before bedtime will have a zero-sum balance for the day.
i even got to run 2.9 miles in the AM [so close to the planned 3!!  and then i heard crying.  but i’ll take what i can get!]
someone managed THREE naps in her day care crib!
i have to say i enjoy my daily written summary . . .
i was greeted by a happy baby at the end of my work day.  
i think she looks like me [well, my baby pics] in this one!
we had a little bit of playtime at both ends of the day, plus a very happy bath session — and now she’s asleep.
i currently have water boiling for a frozen ravioli dinner on the stove.
i didn’t cry once!
and hey:  i’m writing this post, right now!
i think we can consider today a success.  now just to repeat approximately 250 or so* more times . . . 
* at which point at least the pumping part will be out of the equation!

    I wouldn’t call ordering toilet roll online ‘lazy’. I think it is super organised and sensible!!!

    Thank you for the inspiration. I went to look at a daycare yesterday for my not even yet born child! (4 weeks to go) It doesn’t seem quite so terrifying reading your post.

    Congrats Sarah! I’m so, so glad things went well.

    And I buy toilet paper online too 🙂

    Congratulations on a successful first day back! I don’t have any kids & don’t get that much done in a day, so way to go 🙂

    You’re a rockstar in my book! A workout, a full day of work, and a happy baby?! Way to go!

    Congratulations!!! You are a super mama. I’m one month into the 4 pumps a day, and with night pumping in the weekends as well, we stay a little ahead. It’s good enough, and if I need to mix feed eventually, I will do so knowing I’ve done my best.

    Wow! You really are incredible and make me think that you really CAN have it all! Makes me hopeful for my future when I too hope to someday be juggling work, family and workouts.

    Really amazing. Congrats.

    This is not at all related to your post today, and I apologize if you’ve already addressed it, but I just got an email about Orla Kiely bedding at Bed Bath and Beyond…fyi 🙂

    The expression on her face in the first pic is awesome. It’s all "ain’t no big thing, Mom". Haha.

    Those are some *great* daycare naps. You have a fantastic baby. Also, she does look like you!

    I love that the feedings amounts are all "all."

    You’re doing great — keep it up!

    Wow, wow, wow…you ran almost 3 miles, got a happy baby to daycare, went to work, pumped, picked up a happy baby from daycare…that is a LOT and you should feel very proud of yourself! So glad all went smoothly.
