Last Thursday was my first day back to work after over 4 months at home with our sweet little guy. I didn't cry, but oh man.
First, his sitter was sick and I had to find other arrangements just the day before. Thankfully one of my friends is a stay at home mom who used to work exclusively with infants for some high end daycare place.... so we paid her to watch him for the day. I got photo and video updates, he got a baby massage and did arts and crafts ( I'm now the proud owner of a baby clay footprint!)... So everything was going great until that evening.
Between working, driving home and picking him up, pumping, a quick 30 min at home workout DVD and a quick shower I maybe got to hold him for 15 mins because I had to start my evening pump and SCB had to put him to bed... (Notice dinner wasn't even listed there, lol).
Not getting to hold him that much made the next day dropping him off with his real sitter so much harder... But the pictures she sent me on my pump breaks helped and that night after work I played with him while I pumped so hubs could get a shower and I could get more time with him.
Unfortunately, Saturday's are just going to stink. I don't get home till 7:30 at night and its too close to his bedtime to play....
Well figure out a system but I think Mondays will be my favorite day of the week because I'll get him all to myself.
