Shots on so many levels...

Today was a painful day for you, for me and for daddy. First of all, we took you to the doctor for your first set of shots. Of course, it makes sense then, that this morning, you woke up the happiest, smiliest baby I have ever seen. I felt so bad for what we were about to do to you! You smiled at the doctor while she examined you and then to pay you back, what did they do? They poked you four times in four different places with needles- just so mean! I have never heard you cry like that before!
Well, I managed to keep myself together because I have to prepare for the next needle: going back to work. Today is my first day back. I felt terrible leaving you, but I knew Dad would take good care of you.
I called him about a million times, but apparently you slept most of the day. However, when you woke up, you were one unhappy little lady. Daddy got the Tylenol and your lunch ready and you knocked over the entire bottle of Tylenol. So much for easing your pain! By the time I got home, Daddy was looking a little rough around the edges, but he did a great job taking care of you.

An Ugly Reality

I have had the longest, most wonderful maternity leave ever, but today I faced the ugly reality of going back to work. I miss my job and all the people that I work with, but I cannot imagine spending an hour never mind a day away from you. I never thought this would be the case, but it is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I wish I could be with you every hour of every day, but you have the best babysitter in the whole wide world! I am sorry I have to leave you soon!
