Yesterday I went back to work leaving my gorgeous Little Mr with his Nanny and Grandad for the day and do you know what it actually wasn’t that bad although I couldn’t stop myself from getting upset this morning as I put all his things in the car and waving goodbye to hubby as he stood on the doorstep. Sounds silly but I really didn’t want my maternity leave to end. We have had such a fab time together and I really could see myself as a SAHM (stay at home mum) unfortunately with bills to pay, mouths to feed and holidays to plan and pay for, it just isn’t possible.
The girls at work were welcoming and didn’t mention my mascara stained eyes but I think I held it together okay once I was in the office. I’m not ashamed to admit that I got upset, I love my little boy and he’s my world now and it breaks my heart to leave him but for now, I’m a working mummy so that we can enjoy nice things and precious family times.
I’ve had to rearrange my hours at work to make our childcare plans work so I’m now a part-time working Mummy with Fridays at home with my little man. Although financially it’s going to be tough as it’s not a circumstance we had planned for, I get to spend some quality time with my son and those days are going to be so precious.
So day one at work complete and I’m feeling positive for the next chapter in our lives…. x
