First day back to work

Day 118

Today was the first day back to work for me. It was so hard to leave this morning since Simon was still awake when I left and wanting to play. I’ll admit I cried when giving him a kiss goodbye as I headed out the door.

Yesterday I baked this cake to say thank you for their well wishes and their gifts for Simon. The cake pan is from Williams-Sonoma, comes as a set of two for the top and bottom of the donut. I used the recipe on the back of the box and substituted whole wheat flour for all-purpose flour.



The cake was a hit especially the chocolate glaze.

Simon had a good day with daddy and I got to see pictures of him throughout the day on Facebook on my phone.

He’s wearing one of his Paul Frank outfits with his “Stud” bib, Ron called him a “Stud Monkey”.


And he changes into “Super Monkey”, just by moving the bib to his back… up, up, and away!


When I got home from work Simon was napping so didn’t get to play with him right away. He woke up around 7:30pm so that I could play with him for an hour or so before giving him a bath and putting him to bed.  Ron went out to the Giants vs Dodgers game (Unfortunately Giants lost 2-4) with friends so I had Simon all to myself in the evening.

It will be an early night for me as I am still figuring out my routine. Work itself wasn’t overly stressful but trying to figure out what’s changed in the last four months is a bit difficult. Plus I had sudden afternoon sleepiness and didn’t have the luxury of a nap so had to push myself through.
