Final Days Funk

Going back to work the day after tomorrow.  I’m feeling a lot of things at once.  Everything is about to change.  I’ll be working — that is, if there’s any work for me to do.  I’ll be on evening baby duty.  I likely won’t be cooking that much. 😦  I won’t get to be part of a parenting community.  In short, every role I’ve had for 6 months is about to flip again and I don’t know if I have really wrapped my mind around that.

    I feel for you, I do. I can say that for me it wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be because I got a “honeymoon” since work was so slow. I did facetime until 5 pm, went home and saw my kids (and went in late in AMs). I am now buy again and that brings its own challenges but I know J. is a great co-parent so Max will be in hands as equally great as yours. I also liked getting something that was solely mine – my identity as a lawyer and my career – instead of everything revolving around the kids.

    Good luck. It sounds scary and exciting at the same time. You are a wonderful mother and while you may have to shift things around a bit to make it all work, I know you will be brilliant!
