Today was our first full day with a babysitter at home (I'm still here) and it went really well! She is great with Claire and the dogs, and happy to help around the house with light chores. I was able to get some writing done and get caught up on nearly all my emails - woot!
She'll be back to help on Thursday and two or three days next week, then I go back to work, and the worrying mother will really come out.
Sigh, but for now, I will do my best to enjoy my time at home.
