The one where I talk about going back to work (again)

I’ve been back to work one day a week since January 6th. It’s been great… Craig has been staying home on Tuesdays so we can avoid daycare at this point. Which has meant that Craig has a Tuesday/Saturday weekend and further means that it sucks. I don’t know how families do it. How they are working apart while raising young families.

I’m not sure if it would be different if we lived near our families. Our reality is that we just don’t. Craig’s family is on the other side of the country and mine are 4 hours away. So, it is just us.

I also just could not imagine us not being together every night at some point.

The split weekends have been hard on us. Well, on me anyway. I miss my husband and I miss our family time together…. so, the girls will be going to day care one day a week for now. Starting tomorrow.

It’s funny how I am pretty cool about it this time and I think it is because I know that my girls will have eachother. When we first put Piper in day care, it was just her. She was left to fend for herself (so to speak) and now my girls have eachother. They have eachother. That brings me so much comfort and makes it easier for me to face tomorrow.

I have scheduled myself to go back to work June 2nd but only three days a week to start. I am so fucking lucky to get to do that! I will really have the best of both worlds.

You really are fortunate that you can do work you like on a part time basis. It’s the best of both worlds.

And? You’re girls WILL have each other. Sister’s a special, Piper will be on the lookout!
