prior to little miss, i had never imagined anything else other than returning to work full time. but now.. i’m really having a hard time coping with this idea. i get it now. who would willingly want to miss milestones? or smiles? or giggles? or even those horrible days of nonstop fussies? my job as a nicu nurse is intense. very intense. and while i love it and love caring for the babies, i just cant imagine saying goodbye to this one for 14 hours.
how do other moms deal with the return? any suggestions?
