Well, I did it.
I went back to work.
I wasn’t happy about it and totally dreading it.
And you know what, it was ok.
It felt good to be back at work, seeing patients and remembering why I went through so much schooling and training to do what I do.
I missed Luke like crazy and there was nothing better than picking him up and snuggling him after getting home from work.
And after working all day, Scott and I had time for a quick 3 mile run with Abby, then dinner with lots of giggles and smiling from the bumbo chair, some more playtime after dinner, and bedtime routine.
I was really worried about feeling like I didn’t have enough time to spend with him after being with him for 24 hours a day, but I am optimistic after how today went. ***I also had about an hour of playtime with him this morning before work too.
I have one more hurdle to jump next week –> daycare. . . Grandma Mary took care of Luke this week to make the transition back to work a little easier by not having to take him to daycare the first week back. Super nice to have her here and much easier to leave Luke with her for the day. (If you are reading this Mom – THANK YOU!!!)
But I am already looking forward to the weekend. ..
