Working Mom

I went back to work this week. It’s been hard. I cried a good bit after Lucy went to bed Sunday night, and I, obviously, cried when I left for work on Monday. Having Joe home this week as helped ease the transition, but I’m sure next week will be even harder when I leave her with the sitter. In a way, it’s nice to have a bit of adult interaction during the day, but I really miss spending all day with Miss Lucy. What’s been really weird has been not having my diaper bag with me or the car seat in my back seat.

Yesterday, Joe brought Lucy by to visit me at work. She was as excited about being at a radio station as a 2-month-old could be. She was actually pretty annoyed that I woke her up when I took her out of her car seat. šŸ™‚


I’m pretty sure she’s the cutest radio announcer ever. She’s pretty sure putting those big headphones on her constitute child cruelty. šŸ™‚ I’m hoping going to work gets easier as time goes on.

    LOVE the pic. Maybe I’m weird but I really enjoyed going back to work. The routine and the balance of being “me” and then “mama/wife” is awesome. I haven’t regretted a moment of it. I hope you find a good balance too! *hugs*

    I’m sure that it will get easier eventually. In the meantime, good luck with the transition period!
