When one door closes....

Today, God opened another, much better, door for me!

Back story:
I've been working at a Once Upon a Child since October of 2010. I've been completely content with my crappy pay because I enjoy my co-workers and the job in general. It is also a fantastic place to introduce lots of new mamas to various "crunchy" parenting techniques like babywearing! I also work very part time at a doctor's office as a medical assistant. Everything was rainbows and sunshine until last week when I was told by OUAC that I had to have completely open availability or I had to quit. Half of the staff decided to quit actually.

Well, I quit. I have just one more week to go at OUAC. The issue became that I wasn't making enough money at the doctor's office just working one day a week, so I've been really down in the dumps. I make enough to pay for my car payment and then the extra is my spending money as well as money for little Ham's clothes and toys. Without the OUAC income, I would just barely be able to cover my car payment. 

Flash to today...I was told that one of my co-workers at the doctor's office is quitting, which is sad because I adore her, and I will be able to pick up more hours! I will have more than enough money to cover the car payment because I am making much more an hour. I am so happy. It is also great experience for my hopeful future career as a physician office manager. All things do work out in the end. :) Now, I'm off to do my economics home work.

The frustration of crawling (or lack thereof)

Little Ham is 'trying' to crawl, and apparently it is very frustrating for him. He gets on his hands and knees and rocks back and fourth, then proceeds to collapse onto his belly and scream. This grueling process has been taking place for about half a month now, and I am more than ready for it to end. I wish he'd just get the whole locomotion of it down. I'm excited for him to crawl (not so excited about baby proofing).

Any suggestions to help the little guy out?

Also...tomorrow is Easter picture day! I will post them when I get them!
