Last Tuesday I started work once again. The little one went to daycare for the first time. That first day was one of the hardest I have been through. Not only did she seem unfazed to be going somewhere else and not seeing me, but my work seemed to have moved on without me as well. So, I had a little one all to happy to be away from me, or at least it seemed that way to me, and my job was now someone else's and I was being given all of the crummy jobs that I had diligently spent five plus years getting away from. It seems my seniority is shot, all because I decided to have a child (although, I think in the end it was all worth it). Now I have to work extra hard to try to re-earn my position, while watching my little one find herself in a new situation.
The second day she caught on to us leaving her with someone else the whole day and was not as easy to part with. The third day she was balling by the time we handed her over, and my heart was breaking. But our caretaker assured us that she was actually doing quite well and enjoying herself. She just seems to have a bad habit where she doesn't like when someone leaves a room or the house, she cries when doors cut her off from people. So, I am not sure it is a missing me thing. Although, when she and Daddy come to get me at the end of the day she is uber clingy and doesn't even like me putting her in the car seat to drive home. Be still my heart.
Overall, the week went as well as could be expected, from the standpoint of me leaving the little one with someone else all day. I was so busy doing 'work' that I didn't think of her as much as I could have.
This past weekend was production weekend for the Cord Community Edition. So, I spent quite a bit of Saturday learning how to work editing magic and having a heck of a time. Although, several times I wished it had been any other weekend, as I mostly just wanted to stay home with my baby, since I had missed her all week. But Sunday I only went in for an hour and a half, then the rest of the day was scheduled for her and my husband. It was special as my husbands birthday was today, so yesterday we spent the day relaxing and watching football and Hard Knocks (the football documentary featuring the Bengals this year). I think it went well, once production was done and we could relax. I cannot wait to see how my work turns out, and the feature article I wrote. Sigh.
Today we didn't do much either. The babe surprised her dad with a superhero card, as that is what he is to her. I got him some pecan tarts, since I couldn't find a pecan pie anywhere. Then we got the dinner of his choice and watched Return of the Jedi.
I get through my days of being the 'assistant' girl at work because I know I have two amazing people waiting at home for me. And I am so excited that the little one is making friends and having fun at Daycare. Take that!
Although, I miss spending all day just the babe and me.
