This week was my first week back to work. Overall, I am happy to be back. It allows me to have a little time for myself away from my biological kids, though being surrounded by my 150 other kids and 4,000 students in the halls, cafeteria, and bus area is not always fun! But, the 20 minutes alone in my new ride is wonderful. I get to pull my hair back, open the moonroof, crack the windows, and crank the radio - it is grand!
Being back to work has its downsides . . . the biggest is that I have to pump! Well, technically I don't have to do it b/c I could be like many women and switch to formula, but that is not what I want for my baby & me. I am a card-holding, official member of the "Boob Nazi" club! Pumping is time consuming, annoying, and makes me a packrat to/from work everyday! But, I know that it is the best for Loco and feel a sense of pride for my commitment to him. This allows us to have a continue with our beautiful bond and create a loving relationship that I will cherish forever.
This evil machine . . .
. . . is all for you, baby boy!
