The Beginning Of A Bad Week

October 11, 2010 at 7:25 am 14 comments

This week is going to be a yucky one. (Not as yucky as next week, but yucky nonetheless.) Why? It’s my last week of maternity leave… and that’s pretty much all I can think about. I don’t want to go back to work! I want to stay home with my baby and cuddle him and feed him and change his diaper and play with him.

So I have nothing interesting or funny to tell you. Just a bunch of “woe is me” whining, and I know that’s not why you visit my blog so I’ll just keep it to myself.

I’ve been told I can get by with non-posts as long as I post pictures of Jansem, so that’s exactly what I’ll do.

Do you see why I don’t want to go back to work? He’s too cute!

    The green blanket on him, does it have some little creatures on the corner and say something about friends? I have one for our little man, too.

    Sorry your mat leave is up so soon! I seriously think that 6 weeks isn’t enough – 12 is much more reasonable.

    Sorry you’re having to go back to work, and yes I can see why you’re upset.

    He is beyond cute, he’s adorable.

    I have been dreading this for you. So sorry that you have to go back. It seems like he was born just yesterday!

    Oh, I’m so sorry that you have to go back. The photos are adorable! Those cheeks are so kissable. Enjoy this week! Thinking of you.

    He is so darling. I went back to work with my first and lasted 2 weeks. I think 6 weeks is a cruel injustice. I’m so sorry. Trust me … I’ve been there.

    I am feeling sad for you this week too. hugs

    I only went back to work part time after Mason was born and the first day back, I remember crying in the shower. It’s hard. Atleast you have something sweet to come home to.

    6 weeks is far too short … I have about 4 weeks left (12 total) and I don’t think that’s enough either. Make the most of your last week!

    I wouldn’t want to go back to work, either!! Time goes by way too fast!

    I’ll be praying for you, Chelsea. You’re a good mama. And he’s precious.

    I’m so sorry Chelsea, what a difficult transition to make, just when you are settling in to your newest life phase – mom! I won’t pretend to know what you’re feeling, or tell you it will be okay. I’ll just agree that it stinks. You’re in my prayers!

    Sad for you too….I can only imagine how difficult this is for you. But I know how strong you are and God is going to walk you through this. We are holding firm to that. (It is okay to be sad sweety- try to enjoy your week together with Jansen!!!! )
    Hugs and more hugs!

    Looking at the picture, I wouldn’t like to go back to work either… Just enjoy the last days as much as you can!

    I feel like I’m just barely able to start understanding what you must be feeling this week. I am sorry, and I hope that you and Stephen can get to a point where you can eventually stay home with Jansen and future Hurstlings.
