So it’s Day Two of the Mummy’s Gone Back To Work week and I guess it’s safe to say that I think I’m doing okay.

Like every new mother, I fought back the tears when the husband and I dropped her off at the mother-in-law’s place on Monday morning. I kissed her on her chubby cheeks a million times and when I finally managed to tear myself away, she had this look of wonderment on her face as they waved us goodbye.

I bawled.

Throughout the work day, I couldn’t help but put in calls to ask how she was doing or just what she was up to. And it made me happy to hear that she was a cheerful little bug. And when I picked her up at the end of the day, she looked at me, gave me a huge grin and started waggling her body from side to side in delight. It was too cute. My heart melted into a gooey pile of mush.

Today was Day Two and she was at Gramma & Grandpa Lee’s. My Mum has been fantastic in providing updates on Baby Connect so I was able to keep track of what she was up to all day, and Mum even documented some of her activities in picture format. I could practically squish her cheeks from the office! :)

I must admit that because of all the logistics, the night feeds, unexpected night poops etc, I haven’t really been sleeping all that much so I wonder how long I’m going to be able to keep this up.

I must go for a quick fix of Muay Thai tomorrow for a shot of energy!

    I can’t imagine ‘back in the day’ when they had only a month’s leave… 4 months seems too short. Soon your body will get used to less sleep and then she’ll start sleeping off and on through the night and you’ll be fine :)
