Sometime over the last week Natali has discovered her thumb. She's been putting everything in her mouth of the last few weeks. Natali has sucked on her hands for a while, apparently she has decided the thumb is the best.

Kelli and I were a little concerned about having a thumb sucker. Various sources say it's nothing to worry about in children this young. So we won't.
Today was is the first day of day care for Natali. It's a trial run.
There was a large amount of items we needed to bring. Being a Monday morning after a holiday, Kelli and I decided to wait until 7AM to bring Natali in. The day care opens at 6:30AM. We wanted to avoid the rush.
When we arrived it was quiet. Only one other child was in the morning room. I held Natali while Kelli finished up a little paperwork. Natali's teacher wouldn't arrive until 7:30AM. We left Natali with the teacher in the morning room along with a duffle bag full of stuff.
I am going to pick her up at 2:00PM today....if I can wait that long. It's very odd to be in the house alone. I thought I would enjoy it. Not so much. Even after 2 months of non-stop care, I don't really want a break.
Today is my first day back to work, but I'm not going. There are lot of rules and regulations about pilots. I have to have yearly training on my plane. If I miss the training within 12 months I have one "oops" month to get it done. My normal month in November. My "oops" month is December. It's now January, so I am no longer qualified to fly my plane. This just means I have to have a little extra training. Still waiting to get word on when I head back. I am going to start buzzing in the ear of the training department.
Last week we got rid of the Mazda5. It was a good car, but the lease was going to be up soon. It was Kelli's turn for a new car so we bought a 2010 Prius. I took over her 2004 Prius. No more sliding doors for us. It's already been a little odd. I am sure we will get used to it. Since it's just the 3 of us, we don't need a big car anyway.
