July 27th, 2009

I was supposed to return to work from my maternity leave today but I'm not.

At the museum the girl said "when I grow up I want to be a bird".

The boy used his push-along walker to cross the room. One hand on the walker and one hand in mine.

  4. Are you home permanently, or just a leave of absence. I can't wait to be on mat leave and I HOPE (crossed fingers) I can manage not going back after.

    It was excellent meeting you on Thursday. I wanted to apologies for just blabbering on about me and not asking you enough questions about you! I will peruse your archive :)

    Take Care

  5. I wish I was off permanently but it is a leave of absence from work. I am taking an extra fourteen months off. Then, if we don't run out of money my husband is going to take some time off with the kids.

    I am going to write a post about maternity leave as part of the Carnival of Maternity Leave at http://www.strocel.com/ . I think I will post it next week.

  7. This post was excellent; in its haiku-like brevity, it said so, so much.

  8. Oh how I wish for more moments like what you described, as I sit here at my desk, and bang away at my technical diddley.

    But I look to my left and see a picture of my boy, and am reminded why I am here, my purpose in this endeavour as Working Mom.

    And it makes the moments I have so incredibly special.
