Home with mama

I officially returned to work on Tuesday. It was sad to say goodbye to maternity leave. Our little family had a joyful time playing together for the last four months. Max stayed home three days a week and, along with Hana, we had so much fun spending time together. It was simply wonderful to connect with my children.

Back to work is such a mixed bag. On one hand it is desperately hard to leave my kids and I ache for them by the end of the day. On the other hand, I've slid right back into the routine at work and it barley seems like I was gone. There is something to be said for adult conversations and solving problems on a different scale than "where is the lid for the play-doh now?

However, today I am at home with my little girl. We plan to play, snuggle, grocery shop, and then play some more. We'll pick up max early this afternoon and get some quality time together.

We're off!
