I have a 4 week postpartum update sitting in my blog drafts that is just missing pictures. I’m terrible. She’s 6 weeks old, halfway to 7 weeks, which is close to 8 and that’s pretty much two months. Haha, fail.
In the meantime, I went back to work yesterday. People don’t seem to know how to approach me about maternity leave and how I feel about coming back to work. Well,…
I was ecstatic.
Seriously. That probably makes me sound like an evil, un-maternal monster, but it’s completely true. I am not cut out to stay at home, or be a stay-at-home mom. Kaitlan completely has me wrapped around her finger, and I can’t describe how excited I am to see her when I’ve been away from her, but I love what I do and I could never go without that sense of pride and gratification that it gives me.
I also have an awesome team, and arrived back in the office to a cube full of streamers, balloons, cards and creepy office knick knacks.

If you are un-maternal, then I am, too. I was thrilled to go back to work. To each her own. 🙂
Exactly. I think a lot of people were expecting that I burst into tears, but I’m just not that person either.
