Today I am thankful for my job. Easy to say when I haven't been there in 6 weeks, huh? I am thinking of other new moms who don't have the option to take 12 + weeks off of work after giving birth, and it continues to astound me. There is no way I could ever be mentally or emotionally ready to be back at work now. Sure, part of me craves the routine and adult interaction, but I am still wandering around in a spit-up haze, wondering how in the heck I am going to make it to the big kids' pediatrician appointments this afternoon?!
I am making it through these first two months, but it is only by fully embracing my 'one day at a time' mantra. I am able to do that by not having to worry about work for the time being.
