For my “maternity leave,” I’m using vacation and sick time, plus there are some paid holidays thrown in there, but I also have to work from home part-time. I love my job so it’s no big deal and it keeps me from getting super behind when I go back full-time in January. However, Ben’s not always accepting of my need to work. I find myself having to hold him and work one handedly. At least he’s cute. 🙂
I do have a new appreciation for stay-at-home moms. I’m totally at the mercy of Ben. When he naps, I shower or exercise or potty or work or clean up the house or love on the cats or blog or cook food… when he’s awake and/or cranky, I hold him, and that’s it. Again, at least he’s cute.
