Re: Back to Work So Sad
My baby is 3 weeks old, and I have to go back to work when she's 8 weeks. I am dreading it as well. I have cried nearly every day since her birth. This is baby #5 for me, and she was a very big surprise- I had been told I couldn't have anymore, so when my (then) youngest was kindergarten age, I started teaching. I stayed at home with all 4 of my others. This pregnancy was such a surprise, and as it turns out, my husband is unemployed now, so I have to go back and finish the school year. I suppose I should be grateful that there's only 10 weeks left in the school year- but I keep thinking about what I'll be missing, and those firsts that will likely be seen by my mother in law instead of me. My heart is breaking.
