back in the saddle

Today Brambo is 10 weeks old and today was my first day back at work. I will be part time for a couple of weeks then go full steam ahead into my insanely crazy busy summer of work.

It was not as bad as I thought it would be. I missed him and wondered what he was doing all day but it was honestly good to be back in the office and feeling productive. I missed my coworkers too so it was good to be back with them.

I also survived my first day of pumping in the office. I hate pumping. It's super annoying. But it didn't bother me as much in the office as it does at home. Maybe because I wasn't trying to take care of the boy too?

I have loved being at home with him so much. It is incredible I spend the day with him nursing and cuddling and chatting. But I am honestly excited about this next phase too. I'm interested to see how real life works with him. Even just after one day, coming home from work and squeezing him tight felt more real than the last 10 weeks. Why is that?

Here is a pic of the gorgeous little man.


  1. Oh, what a cutie!!!

    Glad that your first day back went as smoothly as possible. Not an easy process, so I commend you for taking your time while adjusting to this new routine.

  2. Oh my goodness ...that pic is awesome - what a babydoll! Real life with him will be amazing, challenging, and wonderful. :)

  3. Wow he is absolutely adorable.

    Keep writing more about this. I am extremely curious. I have been thinking a lot about what I want to do and how I will go back while at the same time knowing I NEED to go back, for my own identity's sake. I'd love to hear more about the transition.
