Today was my first day back in the office. I officially returned to work last week, but I worked from home, which wasn’t without its own challenges.
I tried to mentally prepare myself the night before. I even went so far as to meal plan and lay out my clothes for the week. I went to sleep and woke up when my alarm went off. I went through my morning routine and I pumped milk for Tové. I didn’t get as much as I normally get.
Even my breasts don‘t wanna go back.
I got to work, did work, and texted Steve to see how the girls were doing. He told me they were good. Tempess was sleep and she did very well with her letters today.
And then I cried.
I missed them. I missed kissing them. Hugging them. Hearing them in the next room while I worked. I missed Temi running up to me for hugs and kisses every time I went to get water or use the bathroom.
So I cried. Then I got myself together. And then I cried some more.
