Working Girl

Photobucket
Today is the day. I'm going back to work. I've been dreading this day for months. My 12 week maternity leave has come to an end and I am so sad. Today is also Hudson's first day at day care.

Lord help me.

I'm going to miss my little man more than words can describe. Some days I think I could never be a stay at home mom...it is SO hard. And then other days  are pure joy and I can't imagine going back to work.

So today is hard. Please send good thoughts my way and pray that Hudson does well at day care. And pray that he takes a bottle!

Aww man I can imagine how fast that 12 weeks went!! I'm sure you will miss him like crazy. Here's to hoping you are able to get through the day smoothly!

Lady! I am thinking of you. That first day back is rough, but it gets better!! I promise. Picking that little man up from school will be the best feeling! I cried when I dropped SS off, and I cried when I picked her up!

xoxox thinking of you! Everything will be perfect and it will make spending time with your little one so much better and cherished

Amy Powell said...

oh I can't even imagine how hard that is! good luck today :)

Thinking of you Julie! It will be a long day at work, but babies always do better than their moms! Hudson will do great at day care and he will have no problem with his bottles. When you pick him up, you will have energy you haven't had in awhile, and you will fill every minute you have with him to the fullest. Don't feel obligated to cook tonight, if you usually do. It can be a take out night :) Let us know how it all goes!

I can't get enough if him! I wanna snuggle him so so bad! I'll be praying for you (and H), but I'm sure today will go smoothly and with just a few shed tears!

Amy said...

Aww, it is so hard to go back to work after having a baby. I remember crying the night before my first day back after having Jackson. However, it does get easier, I promise. :-)

Michelle said...

Sending lots of love your way! I go back next Weds and my heart is already breaking!

Caley-Jade Rosenberg said...

Praying for you both, and thinking of you all day.
Hope it goes well and have faith that each day gets easier... x

Good luck today! Sending prayers your way!

Good luck! I can't even imagine leaving my daughter after 12 weeks. Thankfully in Canada we get 12 months. I may not be ready by then either :) Hope he does well at daycare.

Vanessa said...

Sending good thoughts and prayers your way! I go back on Monday and I pretty much sob every time I think about it :( I just keep telling myself that it's a good thing for the babies!

Sending you lots of love today. I know how hard it is. I was the mom crying at drop off every day for a week. And I understand the conflicting feelings of not wanting to go back but knowing just how hard it is to stay home. Tough! But you'll get through it and Hudson will get so much love and attention at school. (I know they're not learning much yet, but it makes me feel better to call it school!) Look at that sweet boy and his cheeks? How could they do anything but love him all day! Wishing you a speedy day at the office!

Good luck! I just went back to work on Monday and it's been okay. I'm so busy at work the days fly by. I'm more sad at night when I get home and realize the day is almost up and I hardly got to spend any time with my little man.

I hope you have you have patient coworkers and strength today and tomorrow. Hopefully the short two days back will help for next week. :-)

How has it been 12 weeks?! That's crazy talk! Good luck back at work today! I'll be thinking of you...and if you ever need to talk/have questions, I'm here! :)

Danielle said...

Good luck lady! I can honestly say that first day back was the worst/hardest of my life. But he'll be fine and so will you. Just think of hope awesome it'll be when you pick him up at the end of the day.

Tiffany said...

Good luck and sending prayers up for you and your sweet boy!

Carolyn said...

Good luck friend!! :) He'll do great, and you'll do great! And when you get home, you can give him lots and lots of snuggles! :)

leah said...

Thinking about you today and just said a prayer. I'm sure Hudson is doing great and will give you lots of cuddles tonight!

Sending you happy vibes. Your baby is so adorable I can see why it would be hard to leave him. Good luck on your first day back. Let us know how the transition goes. I go back in a few weeks and I'm dreading it too.

Sending happy thoughts your way! It is SO hard, but I promise it gets better. Every day it's a little easier. Just know that you're doing what's best/right for you and your family and your little guy is well taken care of. I promise that within a few weeks you will feel SO much better about it all. Hang in there.

At least his first day of school outfit is amazing! I bet Grandma is happy!

Just think, you will be so much happier to see him when you get home! Thinkin about you today! xo

Hope the day went well today!!!! I thought of you guys several times.

Classy Fab Sarah said...

Praying for you two today!! I hope it went SO well!!

Linda said...

I know today was a tough day for you, but looks like you both survived and your co-workers certainly seemed happy to have you back. It is a delicate balance I'm sure, so I am praying for your energy and for everyone's adjustment to your new routine.

Mrs. K said...

I love your blog so much and read it daily! I can't believe its already time for you to head back to work. I am 14 weeks pregnant and even THIS early I am already dreading that day when I will have to go back to work after maternity leave! I do think that women who work and raise babies are superwomen. Well, anyone who raises a baby is a superwoman in my book, but adding the work stress isn't easy! Good luck with balancing it all!
