Today is my first day back at work.
Please tell me it gets easier!!!!!
I'm a distracted, unmotivated, crabby, unproductive mess.
Dropping off Liam went well this morning, in big part thanks to Pat's help. I had a hard enough time getting myself ready on a schedule, let alone trying to get him ready too. Pat gave me a good suggestion though - a list of things that need to go in the diaper bag so we can check things off and not have to think about it. Also, preparing the bag and bottles the night before would also be a big help.....Things you learn as time goes on.
I miss my little man :(
But I'm thankful to have time away from him, know what I mean?
I know it will get easier as we get more onto a schedule and such, but in the mean time it just feels like life is all mumbly jumbly.
A friend sent this.....it kind of makes me cry, but makes me feel a bit better too....
A Working Mother's Prayer
O Lord, since I must now entrust my precious child into the arms of another so that I may go forth to earn bread for our table, accept my offering of tears and deep regret. Take my child, Lord—and my aching heart—and lay them together in your dear Mother's lap where both may rest secure until I come again to claim my treasures.
