I started back to work last week ... it has been a challenge to leave Owen, even for an hour... but I've managed.
Over the course of my maternity leave, J and I decided it would be in the best interest of our family if I took some time off to spend more time with Owen. So, I'm back to work for another few days and then I'm off into the unknown of stay-at-home-mommy-ing.
I can't imagine doing anything more worthwhile right now. This is just what's best for us and this time in our lives and I plan to cherish EACH and EVERY moment I get the luxury of being home.
It's interesting... I never thought I'd be so fulfilled staying at home, but I am. I love it. I think my scary/traumatic delivery and postpardum has aided my decision. Life is too short... he is only this tiny once and I'm blessed enough to be able to share in each moment of it!
But for now, Owen and Gammy are loving each minute that they get together! We are blessed to have such an amazing Gammy!
