De-Nile…It ain’t just an Egyptian River

I have been at home since May. That’s the month my bed rest began before my little princess was born in July. Now that she’s here, I’m having those feelings all over again. The same feelings I had when my son was born. I don’t want to leave her. I am more than getting used to being home with her. I think I’m in denial that I’m going back to work.

I have been talking to the peeps at her day care and they are going to be ready for her soon…too soon, if you ask me. She’ll be going to the same school as her brother, so that’s a relief because I know them and trust them. I think one issue is that I know that it seems that once my son started day care he grew sooo fast and I just know the same thing will happen again. I hate missing out on all the “little” things.

At the end of the day, she’s my baby and I want her with me. I have been looking at the silver lining in it all. Many mommies have to go back to work after 6 weeks. I have had much more time than that and even more still so, I’m grateful.

I’m spending these moments just soaking her in. Just loving on her as much as I can. Since I’m pretty sure she’s my last child, I want to enjoy all of her baby-ness. She’s such a happy baby and just pure sweetness. No, I’m not biased! I’m looking forward to watching our family grow up but I’m in absolutely no rush to let go of my baby. This part sucks.

    Aww, I’m sure this is the hardest part–the transition back to work. Enjoy as much time you have with her before you go back, and just know that you’re doing what you’re doing for her. Take care, and try not to be too hard on yourself.

    I understand this so much! I think it’s why I worked nights and didn’t send Pookah to daycare until he was 8 months. I was so scared of missing something! But it will be alright! (HUGS)

    It will totally be fine, I know how you feel though. You just want to stay with them forever. That first week back will be tough, but you should be okay after that.

    It’ll be hard at first but it won’t take long until you’re back in a comfortable rhythm! Enjoy your home time now though!

    It’s so hard leaving them when they’re so little, cute and cuddly. Madison was 14 weeks old when I went back to work I dreaded coming back to work. I agree they grow up so fast but you’ll adjust just like you did for your son. 🙂

    Aww, enjoy the time you have left with her before you go back to work. Time does seem to fly once we become Moms and they do grow up so fast. You guys will be in a good routine before you know it!
