Going Back To Work — The Bump
Babies: 0 - 3 Months

Going Back To Work

I work full time at Walgreens but have been out on maternity leave and was supposed to return October 11. I recently got hired for a 3 month temporary position(with potential to become permanent) at Nordstrom Rack. The job comes with a 2 dollar pay raise and a lot of potential for promotions and I am very excited and hoping I can work my butt off to keep it. But I am scheduled to start October 2nd. While I am in no way regretting my decision, it just makes me sad to have to leave DS earlier than expected. He will be with my mom while I work so I know he will be in good hands, I just know I'm going to be sad when I have to leave him for the first extended period of time.I've been with him almost 24 hours a day since he was born and it will feel weird to be away from him. I'm sure he will get A LOT of cuddling when my shift ends lol. I'm sure I'll get over it, just had to vent.

    It's such a sad thought! Hopefully it's not as bad as I think it will be. Hope it goes well for you when you go back!

  • I'm not going to lie, it is hard.... very hard!!!  I cried so many times in the days leading up to going back to work and the night before I cried myself to sleep.  The day of I cried pretty much every 10 minutes!!  The next two days were better, but then Saturday hit and I had to go in for an operational day.... I work at a children's theme park and we are only open on the weekends this time of year, so walking in the gate and seeing all the families that got to be together hit me like a ton of bricks all over again!!

    3 weeks later, it is a lot easier....although it still sucks :)  You make it work and you do what you have to.  It totally makes for greater moments together though when you get home!  Good Luck, sweetie <3

    That's definitely going to be me! I cry a lot. Glad it got better for you. Thanks for making me feel a bit more optimistic about it, even if it will take a while to adjust.
