So the time has come, the time that I've been dreading...returning back to work! Whoever made the decision that mommies should return to work shortly after having a baby is crazy. And yes, 8 months IS shortly after having a baby.
When I first got pregnant I thought I would only be out for 3 months with my baby. Then when I was 4 or 5 months pregnant I knew I would need more than 3 months but I was sure I wouldn't be able to have more than that. So when my amazing work allowed me to stay out for longer I was so happy.
Fast forward to January 2012 and it was time for me to return to work. I've been out for almost 8 months with David and I consider myself very lucky. Not many people get such opportunities. So why was I so upset with returning to work? Maybe because I'm controlling and I need to monitor all of David's feedings and naps. Maybe because I enjoy being a stay at home mom. But the main reason is because I love being with David at all times. How can I be away from such an amazing person?!?!
So today when I was leaving the house for my first day back at work I had so many emotions going on. As I got to work and was occupied with various tasks I noticed that the day was almost over within minutes. Of course, the hour lunch break and 2 pumping sessions gave me some nice alone time :)
Obviously I was rushing home to see my sweet, delicious face once it was time to leave. It was amazing seeing him after so many hours away but I knew at that moment that I can be a working mommy. Now Mr. David is sleeping, dinner has been eaten, David's breakfast, lunch, and dinner are cooked for tomorrow. Now I have 15 minutes to myself!
