Ok, so it's been almost a month now since I have gone back to work part-time (how momma's who go back to work full-time do it, I have no idea! kudos to you all!). I think we are starting to get into the groove.. it is less intense and less crazy - still insanely exhausted, but that's to be expected! We are able to get our schedule organized such that we have one family day together and Daddy gets one day with the boys while I'm at work. Because of the nature of hubby's work, he cannot have weekends off, but he also has a bit more flexibility in terms of asking for days off so that he can be with the boys while I am at work. The other two days that I'm working, my boys are with my lovely momma - I am beyond thankful for my family for helping out with the boys.
Right now, I think I am working on making sure that we get to spend quality time as a family and one-on-one with M. And that doesn't necessarily mean we have to go out and have a busy day.. spending quality time with the family at home can happen too. I also want to make sure that I am off my phone when I am with the boys (with the exception of taking photos) - so no uploading or checking my instagram until the boys are taking a nap.. It's not that easy, especially when the boys are playing so well together and doesn't necessarily "need" me.. but I think being in the moment with them and watching little things that they do is so very precious and I don't want to take that for granted.. It's a work in progress.. I am not 100% there yet.. a nasty habit to break!
Let me know if there are any other working mommas out there and how are you guys coping?
