Going back to Work

I am going back to work on Thursday and I am not happy......
I will be so sad all day! I feel like I am having so much fun and I just LIVE for H's little smiles and giggles and the new things he learns every day- and not I am going to miss all of his fun stuff while I sit in a desk all day. I hate this. We should have bought some crappy house so I could afford to stay home! uggghhh.

On a happy note- I just had my house cleaned by Molly Maids and it looks awesome. That was a great gift for a new mom!!!

Hey! It's been awhile. I really feel for you and am so glad to hear about a new mom who appreciates spending time with her baby. I can't imagine NOT having a connection with your baby and actually wanting to leave him with someone else (some people can't wait to drop their kids off with a stranger!). I hope someday you two can make it work so that you could stay home or work part time so you can spend all the time you want with little H.! He is so darling.

I'm sorry - that stinks. I have read that the most beneficial time to stay home with your kids is the preteen/teen years - that's when they need a parent around more. Not everyone can stay home when the kids are little, but H will benefit from having a happy home, regardless of work situation.

Have you found a daycare situation that you are at least happy with? That is the most important - to feel you can trust who is taking care of him in your absence.

A cleaning service is genius for a new mom!

I'm so sorry! Do whatever you need to do to make the first week work. Ease back into it if you can!

:( It's so hard...that first week back is rough. I cried every day on my way to the train after my maternity leave with TCP Toddler.

Hang in there! He will be fine--it's harder on you than him at this age!
