The working mom

A major milestone today: I went back to work. Just for one day a week (which will be the case for the next month and a half), but in my books, it still counts. It was the first day I was away from Benji for more than 4 hours in a row, and Bry’s induction to being a stay-at-home dad without me around.

Knowing how exhausting taking care of a little one could potentially be, I got very organized yesterday and made lunch and dinner in advance, cleaned up the house, emptied the dishwasher, etc., to lighten Bry’s load. I also gave him a huge list of schedules, reminders, so he knew when to do what.

All of us survived. WHEW! Bry was also kind enough to provide nearly hourly updates with visuals about how the day went so I could relax and focus on work.

It felt great to be back at work. It was also even more amazing after a day without Benji, to come home to him. 🙂

  3. It’s so hard leaving, but i think it’s important for us to be more than “just mum’s”. I’m glad you enjoyed your first day back!
