In other news, I am definitely struggling with the working mom thing. It's hard. On the one hand, I love what I do and I need to finish my residency, complete my fellowship, and then get a good paying job so that I can pay back my loans, so taking more time off is just not an option right now. On the other hand, it's hard when the babies come home smelling like the women who take care of them and when I don't get to dress them in the morning and when I'm pumping all the time instead of nursing. It's totally, totally worth it to be a working mom...it's just that I get it why some women opt to stay at home to take care of their precious miracles. In retrospect, I think I just went back to work to soon. I didn't really have an option to take more time off, but I think a full 3 months or maybe even just a full 2 months would have made a big difference instead of the 6 weeks.
For now though we are in survival mode. And it's not as bad as it sounds. The days are filled with working and pumping for me and working and dropping off/picking up the babies for CJ and the evenings, nights, and early morning hours are filled with the babies...and the weekends...the weekends are just awesomeness with so much time to just be a parent and spend quality time with the babies. CJ and I also try to sneak in some husband and wife time too. I know we need more of that but we are learning!!
Okay, well that was just a lot of rambling, but it feels good to get it out there. Thanks for reading!!
