It's unavoidable, right? On one hand I'm ready to return to work on Monday. On the other hand....well, therein lie all the emotions most working moms feel, I'm sure.
I spent a few hours yesterday with the ladies who are going to be taking care of Seth. I am so confident that he will receive (almost) as much love and TLC from Sara and Jessi as he would from me; they are both expecting this summer, so are in the "baby zone" and just smitten with Seth. So, no worries about dropping him off with them on Monday. Worry has never really been the issue, though. It's more just a feeling of "what will I be missing?" or "Seth isn't going to forget about me, is he?".
Ugh. I guess time will tell, how all the varying factors are going to work together -- scheduling, sleeping, readjusting to corporate life....Jim and I have tackled every challenge that's been thrown at us thus far; I've no doubt we'll get this figured out, too. I just need to get over the "hurling toward the edge of a canyon" feeling I'm dealing with...
In other news, this ridiculous weather we've been having interrupted the plans we'd made for Nana K to come visit. =( Her flight was supposed to land in 15 minutes....and instead, she's in Florida, Seth is in his cradle, and here I sit, typing to you guys, and feeling disappointed. Sniffle, sniffle. I know all things happen for a reason, but I'm really, really bummed. And I know my disappointment probably pales in comparison to hers...So, for you, Mom, here are some semi-recent pictures of Seth:
