Style Cubby - Fashion and Lifestyle Blog Based in New England: An End to Maternity Leave

An End to Maternity Leave

Tuesday, August 22, 2017

Today is a hard day for me, maternity leave is over and I'm back to work full time. I don't know where the last twelve weeks went or how time can simultaneously go by so fast and so slow. I am so not ready to spend my days focusing on work rather than giving her all my attention. America needs to get it together when it comes to parental leave, 12 weeks is just nowhere near enough time. 

This past weekend, Mike, Poppy, and I spent the whole weekend just as a family. We didn't visit with friends or family and we didn't do anything fancy, we just spent time doing things we love around town. It's funny how such a simple weekend can be so perfect these days. I love this little family of mine and I know there will be some emotional bumps along the way as we adjust to this new, working mom life, but like we'll figure it out. If any of you moms out there have any tips on how to not cry all day, please send them my way! 

I do feel like I need to apologize a little. I haven't shared a birth story, I rarely post pictures of her, and she's going by her nickname, "Poppy", in this little blogging world, rather than her full name. I honestly believe it should be her choice to share her life and well, she's too young to decide that, so we've decided to take some precautions. I feel slightly like a fraud because there is this huge, incredibly important aspect to my life that I touch on but don't dive into with both feet but hopefully everyone can understand that :)
