I’m back to work in just 3 weeks. Maternity leave second time around has gone extremely fast. But then I’ve had a toddler and a baby to care for. Plus I lost my dad right at the start. Do I feel ready to go back to work? I do and I don’t. I do to have some adult company and to have some time for me. I don’t in that I can’t bare to leave my girls.
Maternity leave first time was amazing, once we got into a routine. We went to our baby sensory classes, went for walks and to the shops. I had time to stop and take it all in. Second time, well it’s different!
