Katie and I survived our first day back at work and Katie did better than mommy. I cried a lot on the way down to Sharry's and after I dropped her off but from that point on I did really well thanks to my wonderful co-workers who kept me busy. However, after getting home last night 11 hours after we left, I realized once again how grateful I am to be able to work part time. I honestly don't know how moms do it full time. One of the big things that kept me going all day was knowing that I would have two days to be with my baby at home before having to do it all over again. I will write more about our day later but I just wanted to give everyone a quick update and let you know that it went well.
Welcome to Team Garner, the blog about our family just living life in Bellingham, Washington. We became first time parents when our wonderful daughter, Katie was born on her due date of January 6, 2009. We chose the name Katie in memory of my mom who passed away in 1998. Our second little peanut, Carly Rose was born June 30. Parenthood is an adventure and this is a place for our friends and family to stay in touch with the Garner family happenings.
