Returning to work

Friday, August 7th, 2009

It’s 7:30am. “Would you like to turn the Out-of-Office-Assistant off?” I hesitate for a moment then click “YES”.  It’s official. I’m back. It’s been six months and it feels weird to type. My hair is still wet from my shower and I have a little dried spit-up on my shirt. Or is that toothpaste? I don’t even care. I haven’t slept for more than four consecutive hours or  thought about anything else but the baby since the moment I laid eyes on her. I’m worried that I don’t remember how to do things anymore. Thank goodness for spell-check. Speaking of…where did the spell-check button go, Lindsay? Pam? Ivette? I swear it was in the upper right hand corner of the screen when I left. OK. This is pathetic. My eyes are already from tired from the computer screen. Seriously…how do women do this?

We have some information on our website from Working Mother Magazine about making your return to the workplace easier after having a baby. Perhaps I need to read it again.

Now that I’m back to work I’ll be posting on baby-related issues every Friday. I have a ton of funny and not-so-funny stories to share about being a first-time-mom and caring for a new baby. I need all the support and encouragement I can get so I’d love to hear from you. TGIF and see you next week!
