Returning to work after maternity leave - one month milestone
After twelve months maternity leave I’ve been back at work for a little over a month.
It makes me realise that my professional life is an important part of me and that I have hard earned skills that I want to utilise to the betterment of my community.
This adjustment has been made easier by the fact that I am now working part time and that my little boy has adjusted well to his new care arrangement. He has not exhibited any real signs of separation anxiety which is a huge relief to his mother’s heart.
Walking along the street at lunch time without pram and nappy bag in hand also makes me feel a little like my old spontaneous self, even if I am checking my phone for updates on the Squishy!
It would appear I have found a balance and I quite like it.
