This week was my first week back at work. I was definitely a little scared of this week. How would our baby girl do with her grandparents and at daycare? Would I be able to pump at work? Would I still know how to do my job? There were so many crazy questions going around in my head. And yes, I know that they were crazy! I mean.. I have been a nurse for more than a decade so I will never forget how to be one. LOL!! Thankfully I got a very warm welcome when I walked in on Monday morning. Which definitely made me feel much better. (Especially since my day started with having to get a new uniform since my old one didn’t fit at all!!! Sigh.. I guess I didn’t lose all the pregnancy pounds I thought I’d lost! :D) I was glad to find myself really enjoying being back at work. Sure.. it takes a little getting used to being back there again. Some things have changed, there are a lot of new students and even a lot of new colleagues but mostly things are the same. 

Baby girl did great with both grandparents and at the daycare. Which made all the difference. Rosanne is a very happy cheery girl, who sleeps well and doesn’t cry all that much but I was afraid that maybe she only did that with us. Thankfully she does great with other people too which makes working a lot more fun for me. 

Although everything went great and I had a free day after every workday (I worked Monday, Wednesday and Friday this week) I was absolutely exhausted at night. I definitely didn’t think it would be this exhausting to get back to work and getting into a new routine. But I probably just need some time to get used to this new life again. So I didn’t read a lot or do a lot of blogging this week but for a first week back to work I think I did pretty good.

  2. I recall how challenging it was to go back to work after each of my children. I had four...and I stayed home with the first two until the youngest was almost two...and with the third, I went back when he was 8 months old. Then I felt guilty. LOL. I stayed home for a year and a half with the fourth one.

    But...I think it would have been easier if I hadn't had so many kids. LOL.

    Enjoy your week, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Wow.. four kids. I definitely want more, but four? How did you do that? LOL!! If it was a possibility for me to stay home, I definitely would.. but since it isn't possible for us I do think her staying with her grandparents and one day at the daycare is good for her development. Especially since she does all these activities at the day care. I still wish I would be able to work from home though.
      Happy Reading. ;)

  6. It sounds like it is going as well as expected. I'm not surprised you are tired, a different day than you have been doing. Now to just fit in a little time for yourself to relax and read. Anne - Books of My Heart
