It has been 7 weeks and the stress & anxiety of hospital bed rest is now a distant memory. I’m now officially back to the grind.
I took twelve weeks of maternity leave (5 weeks on hospital bed rest & 7 weeks at home with my boys). Seven weeks fly by fast even without sleep. And just when I’ve started to get the hang of how to be a mom of two under 2, it’s time to return to work and learn how to balance work and life again.
I know that the first few weeks would be a struggle with trying to manage everything. It’s going to be an incessant process of re-negotiating priorities and managing the curveballs that will get thrown my way. I will lose myself once again but I also know that it’s going to get a little easier day-by-day and that one day, when the boys are older, I’m going to miss it all…
