Today is my last official day of maternity leave.
There have been so many different emotions swirling around this past week – sadness, anxiety, excitement, fear, guilt, and anticipation just to name a few.
Moms forewarned me that I wouldn’t really know how I would feel about returning to work until Aliya was here. They were right.
I’ve flip-flopped a few times already since she’s been born. Days after she was born, I couldn’t imagine ever leaving her. And then about three weeks later, I was sure I was ready to go back to work, where I might find a bit of my “old” self lingering around somewhere. Five months later, I’m somewhere in between.
I just love my Sassafras to pieces.
