So, today is my first day back at work since June 1st (I'm parttime for this and next week and fulltime after)! LO is almost 4 months old, but I've been out since several weeks before my due date. While I'm sad and definitely cried a bit at daycare and on the way to work, I'd also like to report that the day has gone better overall than I anticipated. Thought this might help other moms returning to work. Here are some other firsts for today:

1) LO's first day at daycare
2) My first day away from him for more than 3 hours
3) My first time pumping on a schedule
4) My ability to get both hands on the computer when I want
5) Was able to eat my lunch in peace
6) No fear of spit-up all over my clothes
7) Adult conversation everywhere I look

I was definitely sad all week last week, over the weekend, and especially when I said goodbye to him at daycare this morning. Luckily my husband came with me for more support. I'm grateful that we're taking him to a home daycare, and I love the caregivers. I know he's in good hands, even though I miss him! So far, the anticipation was worse than the actual day.

Remind me of this post when I return truly fulltime in 2 weeks!
