Today was my last day home with the baby. As of tomorrow, I’ll officially be a working mom instead of a stay-at-home.
It will be our mornings together that I miss the most. Her snuggling next to me for a few more minutes of sleep, kissing the corner of her mouth to wake her up, her sitting in my lap in bed while we watch one of her favorite videos so I can have a cup of coffee.
There will always be part of me that feels like I wasted a little of my time with her – that I took it for granted and didn’t enjoy it as much as I could have. For now I’ll just concentrate on not crying when I drop her off tomorrow, so I don’t show up at work with swollen eyes and runny mascara.
