I head back to work on March 10. I really like working and I’m definitely not cut out to be a stay-at-home mom, so I’m mostly happy and excited. Still, I’m a little sad, too. I can’t believe how fast my time off flew by. I can’t believe how big Sam is! It’s true what they say — you blink your eyes and they grow.
So, some aspects of this transition will be easier than the first time. We already have a wonderful nanny in place. I have a great schedule that includes three work-from-home days. I know how to use the breast pump.
But … now there’s two. I had gotten into a great groove with Maddie. Sam is still very little — he’s not quite on a schedule yet, though he’s much less random than he was. I’m sure he’ll into a better routine as a natural consequence of me being on a schedule.
I anticipate the first few weeks will be challenging.
