I returned to work on August 1st. The last time I had been at the office to work was the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. I remember stopping by my secretary's office and mentioning that I was going to swing by my OB's office on the way home for a "peace-of-mind" check-up because I just felt a little off. That was over eight months ago and now, after a week and a half on the job, it almost feels like I never left.
So far, returning to work has been a relatively low-stress transition. I am working four days a week and out of those four days Trevor will be home with Fletcher three days and my mom will watch him one day a week. Of course I miss Fletcher like crazy when I am gone, but I think it is good that he is getting so much one-on-one time with his dad.
I even got to show Fletcher off to my work colleagues my first day back as the firm just happened to be having an ice cream social that afternoon and Trevor brought Fletcher up to meet everyone.
Here is a picture we took when I got home from work. Think I was happy to see my little guy?
