Last week was overwhelming. It was my first full week back at work and it wasn’t smooth. Continued frustration with Ryan’s day care (last Thursday was his last day there yay!), over 4 hours spent in the ER one night - he’s 100% healthy and safe thankfully, followed by a bad cold and cough which he likely caught in the hospital, lots of time spent researching child care options while trying to focus at work. I keep reminding myself that this won’t be what a typical week feels like. I’d better be right about that, because I haven’t been this exhausted since Ryan was a newborn.
But, there’s plenty of good. Steve stayed up late with me one night to keep me company while I worked, rubbing my feet and pouring wine at regular intervals. This weekend, we celebrated surviving one week with champagne and a candlelit dinner. While I can’t turn back time and return to the perfection that was maternity leave, life is good.
