As the title explains I went back to work for the second time on Wednesday. I remember three years ago when I went back with my first it was hard but I wasn’t expecting it to be as hard as it is this time since I knew what was coming. I love working but I have a SUPER long and challenging commute with lots of transfers and a huge pumping bag. I feel heartbroken leaving my daughter even though I want both my daughters to know that they can be moms and have careers.
I was relieved when last night came because we survived our first short week back and daycare transition but I’ve cried so much in the last few days my eyes hurt and the thought of leaving her again on Monday is making me anxious since it’s a full week next week.
How long until this gets easier? I can’t seem to remember from my first.
