(Don't forget to enter for Braylabee's custom gift giveaway.) 

To prepare for tomorrow's big day (my first day back at work after maternity leave and Peanut's first day at Daycare) I made a list,

and checked it twice (just kidding; about the checking it twice part, not the list...obviously).

And started packing stuff into her diaper bag.

Her favorite blanky (thank Denise!) that she sleeps with and the seahorse for her naps.  The daycare recommended bringing something that will make them feel like they're at home.

Bottles with their totally cute labels

and tops, all labeled.

I started defrosting the milk in the fridge and am waiting until later tonight to put it in the bottles.

But while I was packing up all the stuff, I found these in her diaper bag.

And then I cried a little.


  1. I can't lie--going back to work is really, really hard. "Mommy guilt" is a powerful thing and I didn't deal with it well. But after a while, you and baby get use to the new routine. You will find yourself treasuring all the moments you do have with Addison when you aren't at work.

  2. At least you are completely prepared so you can rest assured on that front. Try to focus on getting to see coworkers again! The day will be over before you know it. And how much fun you all will have in the evening when you are reunited!

  3. I will be thinking about you tomorrow as you venture back into the working world! xo

  4. Good luck today Kat, I'll be thinking of you & Addy. I'm sure it'll all go well and that you'll both have a great first day!

  5. Awww...Kat! I hope your first morning back at work and Peanut's first day at daycare are good. Hang in there hun! I have no idea what you are going through, but imagine that 'hard' doesn't even begin to cover how it is. *hugs*

  6. I'm thinking of you today. I hope it's going ok! I'm sure Addison can't wait to see you after work...and, you can't wait to see her, too!

  7. I know how hard that can be...good luck!!

  8. Hope your first day back went well. :)

  9. Hope your first day back went well. :)

  10. I know how hard that can be...good luck!!
