In 2 weeks and 2 days I will be sitting at my desk right now rather than being here with my little man...and quite frankly it just flat out sucks. The good thing is I *might* have secured a place to keep him during the day, but I am still looking for various part time jobs because I want to be home during the day with him....especially when the weather breaks and I can take him for walks or to the park that is literally 2 blocks away. Plus, we all know how much I HATE my job (yes, I know I am thankful to at least have a job, don't even go there will ya?)
Oh, speaking of work and things I hate....I have a MIL (ha!) story regarding this issue. About 3 weeks ago when Cullen was 1 month my MIL comes up and asks when I will be going back to work and what we will be doing with the baby. I tell her I go back the 21st of Jan and as of right now we have no idea. If worse comes to worse I will have to stay off longer than expected, at least for a week or so. THEN she goes ON and ON about how leaving him will be the worst thing I will ever do and how much I am going to cry and cry and cry....because that is how she did with Thomas (although she called him Eddie which drives us both up a freaking wall, but anyways) and I will be missing on of the most important times of my son's life. THEN she proceeds to say "Well, of course I had a year off with Eddie". Does anyone else see how utterly wrong this was? I mean, did you really just tell a hormonal partpartum mother who doesn't want to leave her child with anyone else right now that YOU got an entire fucking year off work and cried and cried and cried when you had to leave him then? How the hell do you think ~I~ feel after less than three months? And of course she then she proceeds to rub it in by stating how I will be missing one of the greatest times of my son's life?!?!?! Seriously lady.....F***k You.
