So sorry that I haven’t written in ages! Live is good! We been to Sweden and survived the plane without much issues, a bit of crying when he got tired but with a bit of breastfeeding and he was sound asleep! Now we are back and trying to settle in to life again. Well it will change again soon! On Monday I go back to work! Crazy that it has been over a year! Ohh many exclamation marks
Yes, on Monday I go back to work for 3 days a week, I am looking forward to it and also dreading it a bit. Looking forward to returning to my job and my colleagues who I have missed a lot, looking forward to thinking about other things than nappies and milk. But dreading missing Tycho, but mostly dreading him not settling in at nursery.
Last week we spent two settling in appointments at the nursery, first one was for one hour and he was a gem, the nursery worker in charge said he was a delight to look after. The second time he went for 4 hours, half of it was good but come nap time and after he was so sad, cried and cried. When I showed up he flew into my arms and he was very upset. Tycho is not extremely cuddly when he is sad, more like he gets so mad he pushes you away, so it was little they could do. Later that evening I could tell he was both teething (poor boy got 2 new ones coming to add to the 8 he already got) and gotten a cold so I guess that was the reason mostly, he has been quite sad during the weekend too.
Tomorrow he is going for 3 hours. Not during nap time this time, I really hope it goes well! I can tell he likes his keyworker, she is lovely, so I know he is in safe hands, I just hate the idea of him crawling around sad and angry pushing her away and working himself into that state he was in last week Well I am keeping my fingers crossed!!
Apart from that things are good. I am still breastfeeding, I wanted to try and give up for when I go back to work, but maybe that is just being too cruel to the boy. Too much too soon. I am just doing it first thing in the mornings anyway, so I reckon we can do it for a few more weeks. Hopefully giving up wont make me relapse or anything silly like that. I also hope returning to work will not make my fatigue come back with a vengeance, but I suspect it will, at least in the beginning.
Well in risk of sounding very corny a new adventures starts! This past year has been the most amazing in my life so far, I know us MSers are all different but for me motherhood and pregnancy has been almost as good as a cure of sorts.
