Fighting Back the Tears: The First Day of the Nanny Share

This little turkey starts his nanny share today, and I am fighting back the tears! Even though he will only be three streets away, I can not imagine how I’m going to get through my day without him.

henry's first day

I started full time employment (from home) last Monday so it is time for Henry to start a care arrangement so that I can get some work done during the day.

Even though I know that most moms go back to work and leave their babies, I am finding little comfort in that knowledge today.

9am – 6pm seems like an eternity. Hands down, it will be the longest time that we have ever been apart, and I am having a hard time fighting back the tears. If I thought I had FOMO leaving him with his daddy while I swim for an hour at the gym, I am almost crippled by the FOMO of the work week.

We will be leaving the house in 35 minutes to take him to his first day with the nanny and the sadness countdown is in full swing.

Send me kind thoughts today,

  1. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.

    The problem is an issue that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
    Now i’m very happy that I found this during my hunt for
    something regarding this.
