lions, and tigers, and bears, OH MY!

Does anyone know what that line is from? The one I have as my title? It's been stuck in my head for days and I can't figure out what movie or story it's from. Help!

I could probably google it, but I figure one of you will know what it's from!

Work has been crazy busy lately, and even more so because I haven't had any childcare for J the past two weeks (I stopped trading babysitting with the other mom). I've been reading a few of your blogs here and there for a mental break from work, but I haven't the time to comment much or write here. Things will stay busy for the next two weeks until J starts parents da.y o.ut - and I've also decided to put him into daycare for a full day on Frid.ays., starting in June. So I will no longer be trying to do all my work late at night or during naps.

I'm also increasing his childcare time because it looks like I'm going to go back into the office at my old, pre-baby job to help out since the interim person that took my job there is leaving J.une 1 and they still haven't hired someone permanent to replace me. So I'll do that about 8-12 hours a week, and then keep up with my other job also. So I'm gearing up for a busy few weeks. I'm kind of looking forward to going back into the office - social interaction, uninterrupted computer time, coffee breaks, and the feeling that I'm actually accomplishing something instead of how I feel with my new job which I don't feel as competent at.

Actually, I've been thinking alot about my old job and wondering if I should go back. But I think I would only be happy for about two weeks, and then I'd remember everything I hated about the job, not to mention that I don't want to work 50-60 hours a week and have J at daycare all the time instead of us getting to go to the park, on walks, to the library, or just hanging out together at home.

And as much as I like social interaction, a good paying job, coffee breaks, and a sense of professional accomplishment, nothing can compete with this:

And he's a great help now that he's figured out how to use the copier:

Husband didn't understand/believe why I couldn't get any work done when J was awake until I showed him this picture:
J has also figured out how to climb up onto my desk, where he grabs the phone and holds it to his head/ear while saying "heya, heya, heya". Then he throws all my papers onto the floor, and attempts to grab the computer monitor. All while I'm trying to work! It's so funny and cute that I can't help but laugh, stop working, and play with him. Very efficient. :)

  • If you've read my blog lately, you probably got it from there! It was the title of my zoo post, which of course, was from the Wizard of Oz. (By the way--I still use my old blog login here because yours doesn't allow anything else.)

    I tried working at home with sick Jenna with me all day yesterday and got NOTHING done! I don't see how you do it. But good for you for the office job for a while!
