I'm having mixed feelings about this. How did you feel when you returned to work?

It was bittersweet for me. I couldn't wait to get back to 'the real world' and have adult time. I missed Shane sooo much though. It has gotten a bit easier.

I felt like an awful mother for being happy at work that I was with adults...So if that hits you while you're at work, it's totally normal and you are NOT NOT NOT a bad mother for thinking it!!!!

It was hard at first, I've worked for a while but the kids have always been with me whereever I worked... but it does make your time together a lot sweeter, and to me it personally makes me feel better knowing I am giving my kids a good life, and providing them with everything they need.

The first week was hard and I felt so guilty for leaving Leah when I was the one who knew her the best after 12 weeks. But at the same time, it felt SO great to see my friends at work and to engage in real adult conversations again. Now, it definitely makes our evenings and weekends more special. I realized that I could never be a SAHM and I find that work re-energizes me for my time at home. I'm taking care of myself and my family, and that makes me feel good now.
