My Turquoise Home

Beach Day and Back to Work

I officially went back to work today. To say it was an emotional day for me would be an understatement. I woke up extra early and got myself ready for work before Isla got up and felt nervous and anxious all morning. When Isla got up for the day I just started crying. I felt so bad that I had to leave her.
We did our usual routine in the morning. I nursed Isla, we all had breakfast, I got her dressed, packed her backpack and we played before Dana and I dropped her off. I usually leave for work at 8:30am so we took Isla to daycare at 8:15am which is right across the street from us! We said our goodbyes, with a few more tears shed and walked out the front door.
Driving to work, things got a little better. Suddenly everything felt familiar; the drive, the scenery, even the radio station was playing the same music that I was listening to just a year before. It all seemed so normal and just like that I was a working mom again.
The day was a little longer than usual but with updates from the sitter, I knew she was doing great and in good hands.
When I got home, we had dinner, played with her new Little People Happy Sounds House and took a stroller ride before bed. All in all, the day went as a I hoped with only a few tears and a happy baby that was excited to see me at the end of the day!

Waiting to get the show on the road.
At the beginning of the week we also wanted to have a beach day before I went back to work. Luckily, it was a beauty day on Monday and this gem of a beach was a 15 minute drive away from us. We spent some time in the water splashing and making sandcastles and then we enjoyed a nice picnic. It was the perfect day to spend with my family before I went back to the working world. 
Enjoy the pictures and I hope you are having a great week!

“I am having so much fun right now!”
