Yesterday was my last day home on maternity leave. Today I return to work. I am beyond nervous, its like the first day of school for me. If you get the chance please say a little prayer that all goes well, and that I don’t cry too many times.
We woke up to a lovely surprise… snow! I was extremely thrilled, and it seems Evie is just as excited about snow as I am. We all bundled up for an early morning walk to go and look at the snow. Evie kept trying to lean out of the stroller and see everything. We ended up just pushing back the little canopy and just letting her get covered in snow. I would love to see a good dumping of snow this year, but I don’t mind if it waits until Christmas break.
Afterwards I finally decided to get my hair cut. Nothing majorly drastic, but it needed to be done. I have been getting my hair caught in the seat belt of the car, and in windy weather it gets tangled were easily. I called to see if there was anyone available and luckily there had been a cancellation just earlier so they were able to fit me in. I may have found my go to hairstylist too thanks to that cancellation. I am happy with how it looks, its nice to feel like my head is lighter, and the upside is I can use less shampoo now.
The rest of the day was wrapped up with a visit out to my Nana, and over to my parents. We had to get Evie home early for bed time because she missed her afternoon nap. I soaked up every last minute of cuddle time with her during her bed time bottle, and while reading her bed time stories.
Its hard to describe, I am looking forward to work and dreading being away from my daughter. I feel like such an odd jumble of emotions right now. I hope and pray that all goes well as we transition into a new routine as a family. I think this change will be good for all of us, hard, but good. I love my little family.
