My 12 week maternity leave comes to an end tonight as I return to work in the morning.
My emotions are all over the place! I love my job, but I’m going to miss spending 24/7 with my sweet Chloe Sue.
I am thankful to work for an organization that values family and believes in work/life balance! A 6 week paid paternal leave, plus some stored sick and vacation time and I enjoyed 12 weeks paid with my beautiful daughter! Definitely 12 weeks I will never forget!
I’ve already cried three times today…tell me I’m not the only mama who is struggling with leaving their child?!
Thankfully, Chloe gets to spend 4 days a week with her Gamma and Gampa and 1 day a week with a dear friend or I’d really be a mess! She is in the best hands with people who love her very much!
Now, back to my 12 weeks off…
We enjoyed so many fun times together, I wanted to share some of them with you!
Monday- Friday we enjoyed Stroller Strides with Fit4Mom Meridian at Kleiner Park! Nothing like getting my workout on with my daughter, other mamas, their kiddos and all while singing nursery rhymes!
Multiple coffee dates, walks, and visits with friends and family!
Our first visit to Boise Zoo! After a delicious breakfast and coffee at our favorite breakfast spot, Big City Coffee! Fun with Auntie M, cousin Ember, Auntie J, cousin Bradley, Jodi & Carter!
Two weekend visits to Gamma and Gampa’s cabin in New Meadows!
And a trip to Portland to visit Cody’s family and friends! Nana Karey and Auntie Brandi planned a Meet & Greet Chloe BBQ!
And that’s just to name a few! So many fun times I could write all day! Again, 12 weeks I am so thankful for and was blessed with and will never forget!
