Going back to work

After six long months I finally went back to work. I never intended to take that long off but after going into pre-term labor at 34 weeks I started my maternity leave early. Then after Baby K was born and we got his hearing loss diagnosis I needed time to grieve and recover from the shock so I took some extra time off. Thankfully my boss was very supportive and let me do that. In the six months I was gone my job managed to change everything. The unit I worked in for the last seven years no longer exists, a brand new one with all the bells and whistles was built in its place. They even changed the entire computer system so I had to be trained on it before I could even come back. So in all going back to work for me has been like riding a bike... with square wheels. It's the same, yet so different. It has been hard trying to concentrate at work because I'm always thinking of K, did he eat well?, is he sleeping?, are is teeth bothering him?.... Its also been a little tough getting adjusted to working nights again 7pm to 7am is quite a beating. Luckily it is only two nights a week. His daddy takes care of him at night and my mother comes over for a few hours the next day so that I can get some sleep. Oh the joys of being a working mom, which reminds me I need to pick up some lotto tickets ;)

Kemper rolled over for the first time right before I left to go to work. Bittersweet.
