Wow! What a week!
Last week I became a working mom for the first time. I was a little nervous about going back to work, cause I knew I would miss spending every waking moment with my boy. (Since birth, Ethan and I have only been apart for very short spurts) I was ok with the job - as far as 9 to 5 jobs go, I've got a great one - but my job description was getting a face lift, and I happened to go back on month end and year end.
Thankfully Ethan LOVES daycare! He hugs and kisses the little boy that is there and they get along great. Ethan hasn't moved into break down mode when we leave him for the day, but I'm aware it might still be coming.
Evenings are definitely not long enough! I do miss my boy a lot, but still need to get things done in the evening that I normally did during the day for the last 9 months. Mornings are very early for all three of us - My boy used to sleep until 9 or 10, and I'm forcing out of crib at 7am at the latest! Poor Ethan!
And to top off my first week of work, with deadlines everywhere, I came down with a horrible case of the stomach flu on Wednesday morning. I spent 3 of the 5 first days back at work in bed or the bathroom, with an evening on IV in the hospital to boot. Not how I wanted to come back. But luckily I kept my flu to myself - sparing Ethan and Ryan. And I am back to work this week again.
Unfortunately my computer becomes the last thing that I look at - only getting here if a lot of non-Ethan time presents itself. But that's ok. Time at home has become very precious.
