Guilty, guilty, guilty...that's how I felt about having to be a working mom. I was absolutely beside myself that I couldn't enjoy the daily interactions with Roland and was frustrated at the thought of someone else raising him. I do admit, guilt was very prevalent for the first year of life. After much research, I soon came to realize that feeling guilty is a common feeling among new working moms. Phew!
I came home at lunch for the first two weeks to help Roland with the transition of being apart...truthfully, I'm not sure if it was for him, or for me. He was my little buddy. I had been with him every single day for 9 months in the womb and 3 months in the world. So yes, perhaps it was more for me, perhaps I was the one who had separation anxiety.
My first day was complete! I successfully made the transition as a full-time working mother! It was exhausting however... my sister snapped the picture below after my first day back to work. I was mentally and physically exhausted...and Hubby was exhausted from being 'Mr. Mom!'
