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.
