I'm Back

It's been about six weeks since beautiful baby Violet was born. Pretty standard "maternity leave" time. As a stay at home mom I don't get your typical maternity leave. My life really won't change much looking in from the outside. It doesn't look the same as going back to an office, but it feels that way to me. I guess it's probably not acceptable for me to ask Ryan to stay home from work and help me now that I'm the magical "six weeks out". Dinner is again my job, and laundry, and cleaning. Exercise should most definitely become a priority now. Nola should probably not be watching tv all morning long. And (this I'm thankful for) if I take a nap during the day I have a hard time falling asleep at night.

It feels great to be back in the good ol' "office".


  1. You are simply beautiful Charity!

  2. Very cool, very true post. I sort of wobbled back into normal life post-surgery and it felt exactly like this (FEELS, I guess). Not a huge difference work-wise, etc. But yea that edge of responsibility to take care of things and of myself - it's back. Hope you got some fun Christmas presents to use, look at, watch, or put away to help make the transition nice!

  3. It is always nice to get back into routine. And yours includes such adorableness!
