Tomorrow is my first day back to work after an amazing maternity leave. Although I know the time has passed I still can’t believe my little boy is already twelve weeks old. People weren’t kidding when they said it would fly by in the blink of an eye.
But to tell you the honest truth, I’m ready to rejoin the working world. Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t trade the time I’ve spent with Everett the past couple months for anything. It has helped me grow closer to him, better understand his needs and help me get used to being a mommy. That being said, I’m in need of a little separation now.
It doesn’t hurt that I know he will be getting the best care a little guy could get because we’ll be dropping him off with his grandmas daily. Both my mother and mother-in-law will be his caregivers. I promise, no one could love our little boy more than them and this makes it all the easier to head back to the office.
As I kiss Evie goodbye tomorrow morning I can’t promise there won’t be tears, but I do know that I have done everything I could over the past twelve weeks to give him a good start to a happy and healthy life.
