I've been back to work part time since the beginning of November and unfortunately my time is running out for working just part time:(. After Spring Break I have to return full time. We are planning for Jacob to take some time off then to help my mom during the day. It seems every week we are scrambling to find enough volunteers to help out while we are both gone.
Even though we are only gone during the 1:00 feeding it is still a LOT of work to entertain 5 babies all afternoon. The volunteers we have are absolutely AMAZING--they help us out whenever they can but they each have their own lives outside of our craziness so their time is limited with us.
I'm hoping to find a few more new volunteers to fill in here and there during the afternoons so that my mom isn't trying to handle all of them at once---although she has gotten pretty good at managing it. I know its a lot of stress on her and I'd like to eliminate that if at all possible. She has been our saving grace this year--she has given up so much of her own time and time with my dad and the rest of our family back home in order to help us out. I better be thinking of a good Mother's Day present right?!!??
