Well, I’m starting back to work today after 8 weeks of maternity leave. I’m not going back full-time. I’m not even going back part-time, for that matter. I’m going back… let’s call it one-eighth time.
I’m easing myself in before going back full time in a couple weeks. And, even though it’s only for four hours, I’m dreading being away from my baby girl.
How do you workin’ mamas do it? I’m sure I’ll settle into a routine. And, it might even be nice being out of the house and having adult conversations again. But, for now, as I’m sitting here sipping my coffee and watching my baby girl play with her dad as they prepare for their first morning alone together, I’m sad.
On a positive note, isn’t she so adorable in her little “hangin’ with my daddy” onesie which is just perfect for the occasion?
