I went back to work at exactly 28 days postpartum. I had really enjoyed being home with my little muffin but I was excited to be on the scene again. It wasn’t all that special, I went to work, socialized, and shared pictures with my coworkers. When I got home, Mr. Blue Eyes had done really well with the muffin as far as I could tell. He was full of stories of nasty diapers, and her being so cute.
It was difficult to leave after being with her nonstop for 10 months. I felt like I was missing something on the drive to work. But in the end it was good for me to get out of the house and socialize with adults again. I think I wore make up, but at this point I can’t be sure. I have not worn much make up at all since the muffin came out of the oven.
Most moms I’ve talked to were ready to go back to work, other moms wanted to become stay at home moms. I got really lucky. I’m something of the in-between. I only work part time and that suits me very well. I still get to get out of the house, socialize, and then most of the week I get to share those sweet moments with my baby. I notice now that she’s growing up so fast and it’s amazing to get to watch her develop day to day.
