Just As i Am...

Try a little sadness....

i've been singing Otis Redding's "try a little tenderness" today so it inspired my title.

i'm sad. sad. excited. nervous. anxious. relieved. but mostly sad. sad because i am going to be returning to work and will be away from my little man on a daily basis now.

I've spent the last nine weeks just holding him and staring at him and noticing every new eyelash, witnessing every smile... and now i have to return to work and i'm going to miss the milestones in his life...

sigh.

on a funnier note, i forgot my son's name last night and ended up calling him "what's his name." This is just adding to the list of crazy things that go on in my little world... I thought you were only supposed to be this absent-minded when you're pregnant. but it's been nine weeks... i can't use that excuse anymore.

i'd like a dose of "Remember-cilin" please... STAT!

Yes, you can use that excuse and you can use it for the next 18 years. As much as you love them, they make you crazy!

I know how you feel having to go back to work. The first week back for me with my three was hard. I felt fake smiling when all I wanted to do was cry. Take some photos to remind you of what you have waiting for you when you get home.
