Doula Training Days 1 and 2

Today was a full day of training for my birth doula course.  I'll be back next week to write out my thoughts on the course after I've had a chance to process. 

Last night I got home a little late.  Little J was already asleep and Baby K was tired.  Baby K took forever to fall asleep and I was amped up so I took forever to fall asleep.  It was a late night.

Then it was an early morning.  It was the first time in a long time that I had to set an alarm.  Well, J set his alarm because my alarm clock is old and busted and really only good as a clock now.  I got ready and was almost out the door when Little J woke up.  He came down to say bye and I was on my way.

I was out of the house from 7:45am until 8pm.  I had my course from 8 until 5:30 and dinner with J's family after.  It was really nice to be out of the house and to be learning something I'm so interested in.  I really appreciated the notes from J telling me that him and the kids were fine.  They kept busy doing fun things.

The best moment of the day was when I was reunited with my family.  I pulled into the driveway and saw them in the window, huge smiles on their faces.  Baby K finally saw me and started jumping up and down.  When I got in the house the kids jumped on me and smothered me in hugs.  Amazing.

Bed time tonight was pretty smooth and I'm hoping the overnight is good too.  I'm going to cash in on this extra hour we get today and go to bed early.  My brain is full of learning and my body is tired.  Sleep sleep sleep.
