Return to Work

Today is the day...I am back at work. I loaded up the car last night with all Lexi's "necessities". I didn't want to forget anything. She is spending the night tonight with her grandma. I will see her this evening and she will be home tomorrow. We had a bit of a mix up in who was watching her when, which necessitates her sleeping at grandma's tonight. She did give me a present though...she slept from 10pm until 4:25am! She woke around 2:30, fussed a little, and went back to sleep! I fed her at 4:30, and packed her into her carseat, where she promptly fell asleep and then slept through the whole ride to my mom's...all the way until 7:30 this morning! (I've been told, as I left her at 6:30!)

It's amazing how much I miss her. I'm not worried about her, as I know she's in excellent hands...I just miss holding her and cuddling with her. I'll have LOTS and LOTS of hugs and kisses for her tonight when I get off the train. There were tears on the ride to grandma's (mine, not hers). It's just hard to believe 12 weeks went by SO fast!

Update: I just received a flower arrangement with a card reading "Thank you for being the best Mommy in the world! Can't wait to see you when you get home! Love, Lexi." I am now an emotional wreck, with tears streaming down my face. Thank you baby...mommy loves you too! (Thanks DH...I needed this!)

My heart hurts for you with this post. I cannot even imagine how hard your day was and I hope it came and went swiftly... and I hope they get easier. It's got to be hard to leave them and at the same time I have to confess it is hard being with them full time, too. Your husband is SO SWEET, the flowers are amazing.
*hugs*

Awww that is so sweet! It is very tough to go back to work, but soon it will just be the new normal! I am glad you have relatives to help.

Good luck this week!

That's awesome that she slept so long, especially for your first day back.

What a sweet husband you have to think of something like that.
