The last day of leave

It is 2:35 am. I fell asleep on the couch and now I’m up pumping. Today is officially my last day of leave.

Yesterday was a great day. Baby G, the committed picky eater, agreed to eat mac & cheese for the first time ever. I was so proud of him. Husband took him to Friendly’s for dinner as a reward. It was unbelievable. There is hope yet.

For my last day I hope for the same kind of day: pleasant, playful, hopeful, and being prepared for the rollercoaster that will be Monday.

I have to keep reminding myself that it’s not like I have a one way ticket to hell. There is definitely a return any time I want.

Priorities on my last day:

  1. Keep the house tidy, and stay up-to-date with the laundry
  2. Prepare the necessary bags to make sure I won’t forget anything for myself or Baby J’s first day of daycare
  3. Put out trash and recycling
  4. Slowly, in an orderly fashion, continue clearing the 1st floor closet off christmas toys so we can continue emptying out the whale-like bins we have in the hallway.

And then… back to work. Deep breaths.
