I love being home with baby G!
Our first 6 weeks were extremely rough but now we are finally getting the hang of things and I am loving it! But my maternity leave is almost over and it makes me so sad!
I don’t know how all of you working moms do it! I am already an emotional mess whenever I think about going back to work! I know it is partially due to my crazy hormones while breastfeeding but oh boy does the thought make me tear up!
Stay at home moms, it truly makes my heart so happy that you get to relish in every moment of your children’s lives! You get to nurture, discipline, rejoice and enjoy them in a way that only happens when your job is solely being a mom. My mom stayed home with us for most of my childhood and I still remember our “Waffle Fridays”, the clean home she provided us, lunches always being packed, her helping in our classrooms and so many more fond memories! I have the best mom in the world and I will try to take many of my childhood memories and recreate them for my sweet boy.
Working moms, oh how I am in awe of what you accomplish! I am not sure how it feels to be a working mom yet but I do see the hard work, sweat and tears that come with it. I want to learn from you and discover new ways to enjoy the time I do get with my son and learn to truly cherish every second I get to spend with him. My mother in law went back to work at 6 weeks postpartum with both of her sons. She is amazing; one of the hardest working women I know. And my husband adores her and never felt as if he missed out because she worked. I hear so many stories and memories of his childhood and that is what brings me hope in the fact that I will be able to create memories with my son, despite being a working mom.
Yes it will be tough. There will (and already have been) tears. But I understand that this is the best thing for our family at the time and my husband works his cute little butt off to provide for us as well, which I am forever grateful for! Without him working as hard as he does I would have been back to work at 6 weeks! So if you are reading this, thank you for what you do for our family!
Please please comment and give me any tips and advice on how to adjust both myself, my husband and our son to this change!
