Today was a special Monday. As I nursed and snuggled Hannah this morning, happy tears streamed down my face. Our plans? To get dressed, play, head off to our mommy group, grocery shop, nap, bath, dinner, bed. This schedule is our usual Monday schedule, but today it was more special because if I weren't taking a leave from work, I would have spent the day pumping and putting "Hannah" on virtually everything she owns as I prepared her for her very first day of daycare.
I'm so incredibly thankful that I get to be home with my baby. Not a second goes by that I'm not elated and grateful that I get to be home. Even through the blow outs, exhaustion and crying fits, I'm so happy that I'm the one who gets to clean her diapers and sing her out of her crying.
(Let me add that this doesn't go without saying how amazing working moms are for their babies. We are amazing moms in all regards no matter if we're home or working!)
