Daddy Daycare

Daddy put little Brijin to work today on their first day together while Mommy went back to work. When I received this via e-mail today from my husband, I almost cried it was so cute!

Have a great weekend! ;)

Back to work - waaaaa (that's me crying; not the baby)

Started back to work after eight weeks of maternity leave. The moment I've been dreading since I had baby, I must admit. Although I will say, after three weeks I said to myself, "Self, you gotta stop thinking about the future and focus on the present moment." It really did help me to enjoy my time with Brijin so much more and let go, which I couldn't do anything about at that point. It's not like I want to be a stay-at-home mom, but I wish I had the flexibility to have the choice. Oh well!

Luckily my manager is allowing me to work from home part of the mornings for the first three weeks I'm back, which has really helped. Plus Brijin continues to sleep through the night, and I began Tuesday so it's been a short week. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday because even with Brijin sleeping, I'm still exhausted. Took a "nap" at 7:30 p.m. last night when baby did, and Daddy had to shake me awake to feed her. I think all I'll do this weekend is sleep and play with Brijin!

How do working moms do it? Tell me your secrets. My yoga practice is definitely taking a backseat, although I've been trying to take advantage of breast pump time at work by meditating. I must be a mom - I'm multitasking! Supposed to resume teaching yoga in about a week. Not sure if I'm ready, but I can't find a substitute. I'd hate to give it up, but I don't want to be away from my daughter from 7 a.m. until 7 p.m. at night two days per week. Guess I'll have to just see how it goes; I do miss my students and they seem to miss me so I should at least give it a try.

Well, I better go check and make sure baby girl is still sleeping. Almost time for her last feeding and then night night.
