Homecoming

My work situation is really ideal when it comes to work/life balance. Right now I get a lot of time with Finn since I don't have an epic commute to and from work every day. I also get to see Finny at lunch for some cuddle and playtime, which is great.

I think I've gotten kind of spoiled, because when I do have to travel for work (which is only 1 day at a time), I'm amazed by how much I miss my squirrel! It really makes my day to see him first thing in the morning, smiling and babbling when he wakes up. After he eats, we play for a little while until I go to work. It's a fantastic way to start the morning, and Finn is such a happy guy it just lights me (and his dad) up. And at the end of the day, it's great to hang with Finn and do bathtime, storytime, and bedtime. Lots of goofing around and smiles, and lots of snuggles before we tuck him in.

Yesterday I was out the door by 5 a.m., and back at 10:15 p.m., so my only squirrel time was gazing at my sleeping boy. It made this morning that much sweeter--hearing him wake up and start talking to Leo, his stuffed lion, and then going down to greet him was terrific. There's nothing like looking into those smiley big blue eyes and giving my boy a squeeze to start the day.
