Returning to Work Post-Anna

by | Jan 3, 2007 | Uncategorized

Today was my first day back at work since Anna was born. I was dreading it, but it actually felt good to work that part of my brain, again. It’s hard to believe it’s been over 6 weeks. Time does fly. With Audrey I waited 3 months before going back to work because I had a cushy corporate job that paid me for that much time. This time around I didn’t have that luxury.

I knew that I wasn’t emotionally ready to leave Anna all day, so I decided to take her with me to work. That’s one of the benefits of working at a church! I remember all too well the emotional wreck I was the first day Audrey spent at Angie’s while I was at work. Angie came to the church to take Audrey and I cried the entire day, just sure that she wasn’t taking a bottle or not getting the attention she needed. I was wrong on both counts. Angie is a super mom not only to her 2 kids, but also to Audrey and I’m sure she will be to Anna, as well – I’m just not ready to let her go, quite yet!
