So last week was the week that I had been dreading since before I had Avery...yes, it was my return to work. I was very fortunate to be able to take 3 months of maternity leave, but what seemed to be the fastest 3 months of my life quickly came to a end. Work has been fine...I have seamlessly fallen right back into place and it feels as if I never left, however I do miss Avery terribly during the day. I can't help but to daydream about what she may be doing and wonder if she is hitting any new milestones without the ongoing cheer of her mother. But she is in good hands and I am so fortunate to be able to leave her with my parents everyday. And with our current economic status, I am very grateful to even have a job (at least this is what I repeat in my head as I begin to miss my baby).
