I’m Going To Miss This

Because I go back to work on Monday. Full-time. And that means waking up early to beat traffic into the city. Which means no more early mornings with my beautiful son.

I know I can still see him like this on the weekends. But the magical time when it was just us in the quiet of dawn… that’s over. Maternity leave is over. I have to go back to the real world now. And I wish I could just stop sobbing about it.

The only positive thing I can think about right now is knowing that Gibson will be with his father all day and not with a nanny or in day care. Not that I have a problem with that in the future. But I guess I still think he’s just so tiny. No one could possibly love him as much as we do, right?

Because this:

2014-05-25 11.36.34

Is being replaced by this:

2014-05-08 07.23.29

And this:2014-05-10 17.24.10

And this:2014-05-15 16.01.39-2

And that’s just as good. Denying my husband time with our son like I was able to enjoy during my maternity leave would be wrong. But I’ll be damned if my heart doesn’t just ache anyway. *sigh*

One thought on “I’m Going To Miss This

  1. I don’t usually open these posts, but I couldn’t help it. I know it’s sad, but like you said, your husband will get in his own bonding time too 🙂 If you ask mine, he would say learning Xbox young is vital to his success as a man.
