Briefly, About Work

So, I figured something out in my insomniac state... I really had started to define myself by my job. I'm only a week into my maternity leave and I feel like I'm forgetting to do something or letting people down. It's starting to frustrate me.

I know that my family has always been my priority, no matter how much I loved my job. Now? I have these two special little people to take care of, and I can't get work off my mind.

Let go, man... Let go.

Also remember if you hadn't decided to be a SAHM you would be on maternity leave. Relax. The first few weeks are the hardest - when you just want to sleep whenever the baby is sleeping. It does get better!

Don't be so hard on yourself. You've been a stay at home mama for what . . . a week? I think some feelings of adjustment should be expected. Give yourself some time to let go - and some time for the hormones to equalize. You'll be fine.

I have been an insomniac, and I gotta tell you, you can't totally take stock in the epiphanies you arrive at in the middle of the night :)

I cannot wait to read all about your new adventures.

You'll get there. It took me three years to adjust to staying home. It probably took me a little longer because I live in the middle of nowhere. Isolation was my biggest hurdle. But now I am a happy hermit. Now sleep my dear girl, every chance you get.
