Melancholy and the Infinite Saddness

I'm back at work. Not officially, but I'm setting up my room. It was so hard to NOT be home with Ian today. I think it's even harder this year than it was last year. Last year I was frantic and crazed and sort of tired of dealing with a baby that did nothing but cry 50% of the day.

Now, I know what I'm missing. Over the summer, Ian and I have really bonded. He's SO fun (but still cranky) and cute. He's learning so much everyday, and I hate knowing that I'm missing all the little things with him. He's in good hands, I know, but it still sucks not being there.

Sorry to hear that it's been so tough goin' back this year. The life of a modern mommy, eh? Atleast you can be thankful that you did have the summer off to bond with him... lookin' at the brighter side of things. You saw all those little learnings and firsts, which you wouldn't have if you worked some sort of traditional 9-5 job. Atleast ya got to do that much...

And you can totally tell you're a proud momma.. and rightly so. Ian's a cutie... and it's neat to see him, atleast via the blog. :)
