I cannot believe that tomorrow morning I will be headed back to work. I does not seem possible that it has been 8 weeks since my second son entered this world! When it was time to go back to work after Caiden was born almost 5 years ago, I was so ready to get back to reality. Now that tomorrow is the big day; this time around, I am not ready!
What's the difference this time? I think it is because my hubby is home every night to relieve me of my duties and to hold adult conversation. When Caiden was a newborn, hubby was working out of town, leaving on Monday morning and coming home Thursday night. So I couldn't wait to get back to work and be with other adults.
What makes me the most nervous is the mornings. Bennett currently wakes up at about 4AM to eat and goes back to sleep by 5. So at that point, do I go back to sleep for an hour, or do I just begin the day at 4? Then I have to get 2 children ready and out the door, dropping them off at two different places and get to work by 7:45AM. Of course, everyone at work knows not to expect me on time on my first day back. Actually I told them not to count on it for at least the first 2 months!
In case you didn't know, I am NOT a morning person. I will get up at the last minute possible to get to work on time...and now I don't know what that last minute is!
Why doesn't hubby help me in the mornings you wonder? Well, because he has to drive over an hour to work everyday, so many days he is on the road before we even wake Caiden up.
Oh boy...tomorrow will be interesting!
