Do a good job, do a good job....

So mommy-hood has been excellent so far. I have had plenty of support from an awesome family. But I didn't realize the calm realization I would come to the instant Aiden was born: I HAVE to do a good job. Failure is just not on the table. Don't get me wrong...I am sure I will make mistakes like every other parent in the world, some of them may be big mistakes. And my feelings are not the frantic, hormonal roller coaster I expected...It's really more of a "step up to the plate and hit a homer" kind of focus. I just have to succeed in life for this little guy.

Holy-Moly, who knew the difference 4 hours and 22 minutes can make!

Eli, being the awesome guy that he is, informed me that he does not think of me as the family secretary...I am the home manager (he would be the work manager)...

I am so happy to report that workers are finally pounding away at our house! They've got a week to get it done...
