Hi all, question for you.

I've been on leave since July 1 (baby was born July 14, so I had 2 weeks off before she arrived). My current maternity leave plans don't have me returning to work until October 22-- almost 4 months off in all.

I've never been one with the "mom gene" (I mean, I love the kid, but I've never cried when she cries, I don't need to be around her 24/7, etc.), and being on maternity leave hasn't been enjoyable for me. I work from home 90% of the time, so when I do go back to work, I would mostly be in our spare bedroom/home office. My mom has been coming over every weekday since the hubs went back to work when LO was 4 weeks old to help with the baby, and she'll continue to come over when I go back to work.

So my question is, are there any moms out there who went back to work early? I'd like to hear how it went-- whether you were happy with your decision to end maternity leave sooner than planned, or if you regretted your decision. I've posted a status about it on FB, but all I got were comments from WOHM moms who didn't want to go back to work in the first place... so of course their experiences/opinions are different from someone in my position! Any input would be appreciated
