Today was my first day back at work since I went on maternity leave in December. It was a bit strange trying to get my brain back into work mode, but it also felt really good to have something besides baby care and housework to think about. Charlotte came over in the morning and kept an eye on Conan until his afternoon nap. After he woke up I brought him into the office and he happily supervised from his bouncy chair as I finished out the day.
Caring for him while working can only be successful for short periods of time while he's happy, of course, so I've arranged for babysitting four days a week through the month of March, at least. Thankfully we have a good network of friends and family in the area to help make going back to work less stressful!
