Reunited And It Feels So Good

Today was my first day back to work from maternity leave. The past few weeks leading up to today, I have been sad and anxious. So many thoughts running through my head about leaving my little one. Though I know she will be in good hands, the thought that she will not be in my hands when I want to hold her, kiss her, comfort her —  hurts my heart. Those moments when I miss her and I feel so far away — and she is so little.

Up until this point, I have been the main person in her life 24/7. What will she think? Will she be sad at daycare? Will she be fussy? Will she have enough milk? Will she miss me? Will she feel safe? So many questions I ask myself. I couldn’t get home fast enough today to see her smile and coo at me. And to have her older sister tell me how their first day together at daycare was. My one comfort I have. Well…

She was just fine.
