Today was my first official day back at work! Three months went by much faster than I ever expected – a whirlwind doesn’t even begin to describe my maternity leave. I had grand plans to blog all the time once the girls arrived, but being alone with two babies most of the time… let me tell you… “free time” doesn’t really exist! Even with tons of help from family and friends, most of my “free time” has been taken up by eating and sleeping (and pumping).
In the last few weeks, I’ve been able to get the girls on somewhat of a regular schedule and into a good routine to make the transition back to work easier (not sure that’s the right word, maybe more manageable?). The girls aren’t quite sleeping through the night, but we’re getting closer! It still takes two to feed at night in order for either Mike or I to get decent sleep. Yes, I married an amazing guy who helps with everything, all the time!! I really couldn’t do it without him or my mom.
I am also very fortunate to have a job with the flexibility to work from home. My wonderful mom is watching Emma and Kate two days a week and I found a great nanny who will be helping out the other half of the work week.
