I only have 2 weeks left with my little girl before I have to go back to work. That part is never easy and I have been dreading it. I knew maternity leave would go by quickly and here we are. It's so hard to have to leave her behind after spending every minute with her for the last 3 months. I remember the day I had to start Liam in daycare- I was physically sick all day with knots in my stomach. Lately, I have been thinking about how I would probably miss out on her first big thing... rolling over. It usually happens around 4 months which is when Liam did it and I got to see it because I stayed home with him until 7 months. But that wasn't the case this time around and I would get teary eyed and a little depressed everytime I thought about it. I felt like it represented me as a working mom not being able to be there for my kid. I get Mommy guilt when I think about stuff like that. She must have known how I was feeling and gave me this little gift to let me know it's ok.
