Day One

It is 2:30 p.m. on my first day back to work and I cannot wait for the day to be over. I miss Gabbie so much it nearly literally hurts. I have a picture of her in a frame along with dozens that flash by on my screen saver, and although it's nice to get to look at her face all day, it's nowhere near the same.

I miss my baby girl.

It is a little weird being back at work. There's no one clinging to me, drooling down my shirt, or biting my nipples. It's incredibly quiet and I'm going through Will & Grace withdrawal. Last night Aaron said, "Shoot! I forgot to find that job that covers both of our salaries so that you don't have to go back to work!"

It's a little late for that now.

I miss Gabbie so much that I'm leaving early. My boss was surprised that I was planning to be here full days all week. I wish she would have told me this sooner, because I would gladly agree to an alternate schedule. But, now my boss is gone for the rest of the week and so I'm stuck.

I just can't wait to get home with her to play and cuddle, to rock her while she sleeps, to kiss her tiny, perfect head. There's nothing about being here that's better than being home with her.

It sucks, doesn't it? I'm at the beginning of my second week back, and the mornings are okay, but by the afternoon I'm literally squirming I want to get home so bad.

It's gotten a little easier for me, though, compared to what it was like last week; hopefully it'll be the same for you.

Ugh, I can't even imagine how difficult this transition must be for you.

Hang in there!
