Alright, I've been on maternity leave since oct 9th and now I've got to suck it and go back to the real world. Now the kicker is that I actually quit my job while on leave and will be starting a new one tomorrow. My new boss said that it was the first time that he'd ever had "a door" requested in new hire negotiations.
So the pumping bag is packed, I've got my mini fridge ready to go and now I'm just enjoying my last little bit of time.
I'm nervous about 2 things:
1. My son eats like every hour and my daughter is pretty high needs. I don't know how DS is going to adapt to bottles (though he did take one a month ago) and I don't know how the nanny is going to handle them both, particularly naps. DS is going to take the bottle (he's and eater) but he'll just have to space things out more and I don't know how he'll react.
2. It's a new job. Sorry, could you take a 30 minute break in explaining this new thing to me so can go pump? I swear, I'm a serious employee, I just have this one issue. And I have to leave promptly at 5 every day. And I don't want to work much at home for a while. Or travel. I mean, they did know this going in, but still, it's tough.
Guess I'm just trying to get that out there and see if anyone has any thought or advice. Or at least well wishes!
