First, sorry I didn’t post last week! I thought I had a post scheduled and before I knew it, it was Tuesday and there was no #MMM!
This past week I went to work and booked my summer schedule. I’m a casual Registered Nurse (RN) and I go back to work on July 2nd. Baby bird will be six months old.
This isn’t a decision that my husband and I made lightly. I am fully aware that some countries (even next door in the U.S.) women may get little to no maternity leave/benefits. I know how lucky I am to be offered an entire year at home with my baby.
But I’m only taking half. It’s a plan we have had in place for a while but now that the end date is quickly approaching I’m not sure if I’m ready. Or if she’s ready. I love my job and I can’t wait to get back to it, but my job as a Maman is so important, too.
I’ve never been away from her for longer than four hours, how will I get through 12? I know it’s the right decision but I am getting more and more anxious about going back!
When did you go back to work after having a baby! Leave your experience in the comments below!
