Double shifts

Yesterday evening, as we were getting the kids ready for bed, I was called away to the hospital. I spent all night there with a client, helping her through her labor and birth. I got home this morning just before 7am...just in time to kiss Gabe goodbye and start my "day job".

Mothering and doula work combined. Sometimes I wonder about my sanity. :) But oh, the joy of the birth! And the pride in a job well done!

You are amazing. I thought briefly about trying to finish my certification this year, but the realities of dealing with children and childcare and homeschooling made it seem too impossible. I'm glad you are able to make it work and I hope you somehow managed to get some sleep!
