Today is my last official day of maternity leave. I go back to work on Monday and am dreading it SO much. Brian is so much easier and fun these days I am really enjoying spending time with him so it is heartbreaking to have to leave him now. He was supposed to go to day care but I had a total meltdown after visiting it again and decided I just couldn't take him out of his comfort zone so much so have now organized him a nanny to come and look after him every day. Terrified to leave him alone with someone every day but she has amazing references and his Granny is here for the week to make sure it is all going well so hopefully it will work out. I am going to miss the little guy so much every day but luckily as I am a teacher I will still get to spend the afternoons with him. Expecting so many tears (from me not him) on Monday!
It is definitly hard, but once you know he is in good hands the days get easier. I still miss Tiago like crazy but, like you I get off early (630-330) so I get in some good time in the afternoon & evenings. Enjoy this weekend to its fullest!!
Hugs. I can only imagine how tough that's gotta be! I've nannied for several families over the years, and although I couldn't afford to hire one if I wanted, it would absolutely be my first choice of care for Arthur! The 1 on 1 attention is awesome!
