Back to the grind

I found out today that my employer approved my request to work only one day a week in the office and the equivalent of another day from home. So I’ll be heading back to the office on Wednesdays as of October 2nd. And I have mixed feelings about this. I always planned to return to work and I know in my mind that this is a good thing. It will be good for me to get out of the house and have an identity other than mama. It will be good for us to have the income. And it will be good for Colette and Zakk to spend a day alone together. But my heart doesn’t want to leave her for even one day a week. I don’t want to miss any of her important moments. Heck, I don’t even want to miss her everyday moments or our smiley, giggly, coo sessions. I know I have an ideal situation in so many ways and I am grateful. It will just take some getting used to after having enjoyed the ability to be home with her since she made her way into this world. Would you want to leave this sweet face???

Super Cute Face!

    I just want to kiss that sweet face! Colette is blessed to have had you full time for 3 months. I am sure Zakk will be armed with his camera phone to keep you in the loop and how sweet it will be to come home to that sweet face! I love all of you, Zakk is lucky to spend a day with Colette!

    This is hard and I am sure that you will appreciate all the other days that you will be home with Colette. As you say, you do need some other adult conversation.

    She is beautiful!!!

    Oh, I’ve been meaning to ask you about this! I know it must have been a hard decision to arrive at – but how wonderful that you get to spend most of the week with her and only one day at work. Well done, Kristin!
