Well, a surprise trip into work turned out to be a surprise for me instead. I thought I was returning to work closer to when my daughter turns one, but it seems i go back when she is 10 months instead. Noooooo, I’m not ready for this. It means I have 6 weeks til I go back to work and the thought of doing that is so scary. How am I going to leave my precious daughter, I don’t have any family support, so she will have to enter family day care, I know the social interaction will be great for her, but how am I going to deal with her just not ‘needing’ me as much. Every mum must go through this, but wow, I didn’t realise once the time was close, how scary it really would be. I’m going to miss her though the day, and I know I’ll be counting down the minutes to be with her again.
