I like dressing Laura in bigger clothes so she looks smaller and still a tiny baby. I’m having trouble admiting that she is closer to 1 year old than to a newborn now.
Don’t want my baby to grow…
I also confess that I felt sad today when I realized that in theory I was supposed to go back to work on 9th of February. In theory because I chose, back when I was still pregnant and working, that I was going to take only 9 months maternity leave + 16 days holidays from 2010 – so back to work in the begining of March. In theory because, thankgoodness, I can change my mind as long as I give 8 weeks notice to HR. I did today and will have a final chat on Monday. I’m taking the 3 extra month (unpaid), plus my 16 days and maybe even a bit more, since I have another 27 days for 2011. The idea is to go back to work when my mum comes for her annual visit, mid-June, so Laura only goes to childcare mid-July.
I wasn’t ready to go back to work in March. Nono.
