I had RJ Nov 23, 2011 and I went back to work for the first time today. I wish I could quit my job so I can stay home with him. I cried last nite knowing I would have to leave him. I took a break for an hour to come home and nurse him and spend a little time. Has anyone else gone back to work? How was it for you?

I had Aubrey Nov. 22nd and will be going back to teaching next Monday. I love my job, but if I could quit and stay home with my kids I would in an instant. I have cried when leaving the other two when they were babies so I'm sure this time it will be just as hard. I hope you had a good day though and that things went smoothly. {{hugs}}

I have been back at work since 2/7. It is definitely hard. I love her but I also love my job. I always say if I could take her with me that would be perfect!

I also started back this week but easing back by working just a couple days a week until full time return on March 5. I think the full reality will hit me then and my co-workers spoiled me rotten this week with food treats, lunch outings and fun conversation. The 2nd day I was emotional from lack of sleep and a chaotic morning (forgotten lunch by my oldest, strep throat for the middle and having to go back to house to turn off coffee maker ;)

I hope your first week went well!
