I have offically been back to work for over a month now. As much as I was dreading it in the beginning, I am actully quite surprised at how easy it has been. It feels like I never even left and I am happy to be back! The first week I would say was the toughest. Isla was teething and battling a cold so there was little sleep to be had at our place. I spent the first few days at work trying to stay awake and thinking constantly about how Isla’s day was going. Was she sleeping, crying, happy, sad? What if she didn’t eat her lunch? After a few days at daycare and a couple of good nights sleep, things started to fall into place and the days got easier.
I hope these tips have been helpful for you. It may seem rough in the beginning but I promise it does get easier and one day you will realize how great it is for you to have your own time away from home even if it is work!
How did you get prepared for going back to work?
