Anyways, here's 5 things that I do love about being back at work.
|Peanut - 2 weeks|
2. I can go to the little ladies room without holding on to a kid. Have you ever had to pee when holding a baby? It takes skills that I've yet to master.
3. I get to wear real clothes and high heels again. Don't get me wrong, I love my PJ's as much as the next new mom, but there's something that makes you feel like a person again when you actually get dressed in the morning. And do your hair. And put on make up. And pick out nice heels. I missed you, heels. Please don't ever leave me again.
4. I'm very important. Ok, ok I'm not very important, but I'm kinda important. And people listen to me. And those people aren't drooling. It's a little cool. Although other times I miss the drooling.
5. There's a balance to my life. I loved being home with Peanut. But I also love the office environment and interactions. It brings perspective into my life. I am more attentive to Peanut when I have her now and get excited for every single second (ok, I was just as excited before). And at work I am more easy going because it's no longer my life. It's just a balanced part of my life.
Now if I could only figure out how to juggle this new balance in my life...
