THIS SUCKS! I’m going back to work after 8 weeks of maternity leave. Grrr. I don’t think my mental capacity is fully functioning. Did that make sense? I don’t know if I should be out in public. My husband is acting like it’s the end of summer and he’s sending his child back to school. Well, I do have that end of summer brain drain feeling. My instinct is to hold my baby and stare at him all day. Work sort of puts a crick in my plans. I should say that my husband gave me a digital picture frame for my office and filled it with baby photos. It’s my first Mother’s Day present. I guess he’s trying to help ease the transition. I heard that I should look at baby pictures while breast pumping at work. Hmm. Luckily, I have my own office and they put a lock on my door. Otherwise, I’d have to make a sign that says “Breast pumping” as opposed to “In a meeting” or “Conference call”. Maybe I’ll make a sign just to see what happens. Maybe a picture sign would be better. I can make all those male attorneys squirm. Ha! I just Googled breastfeeding signs and there is an official international breastfeeding symbol! Love it! This might make returning to work bearable. Hmm.
