I'm Supposed to Do What in 3 Weeks?

Answer me this. How am I supposed to go back to work and leave this little, teeny person who needs his mommy all day? How am I supposed to live with leaving him with someone else and not being able to take care of him myself?

I have to go back to work (since I was given a measly 4 week maternity leave that I was able to tack my OWN vacation to) in 3 weeks. This is awful. It's unfair. It's inhumane. Even dogs don't leave their puppies after 6 weeks.

You will do it. It won't be fun. I'm not going to lie to you about that. The first week back to work for me was intense. I cried every morning when I dropped my kid off at daycare. Bad mojo. Four weeks is both an eternity as well as NOTHING AT ALL. Dammit.

I'm feeling for ya, kiddo.

Aw, that sucks. I went back to work after 6 months, and that was hard. Luckily, I left daughter in the hands of my newly-retired parents who loved having something important to do in their lives at the time. But it still was the most difficult thing I had to do. I wished I could have been a SAHM, but it was not to be.

Good luck.

First off, CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!! I know I've been gone from blogging for awhile, but can't believe I missed this! Welcome Lucas Ryne!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

And awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww on the going back to work. This is a hard life we live here on this planet, and not particularly "family friendly" times we live in (if there ever were such times). I hope you can make some sort of peace with it the best you can.

Thanks guys. Now that Luke's getting better at sleeping and whatnot, I feel a little better about it, and I'm sure I'll be able to work from home when I need to (or be conveniently ill). But it still stinks.

What a cutie! I can only imagine how hard it must be to go back to work.
