Day 2 at work is almost harder than Day 1. Missing the girls has totally sunk in. We're trying a new commute to get in and out of the city, mainly to try and get me home a little earier in the evening. It's a lot more expensive, but yesterday I got home at 5:35 instead of 6:15. It is more stressful though since I have to drive through Hoboken during rush hour. We'll see.
I had this overwhelming feeling of anxiety last night before I fell asleep. Not that work was hard or stressful yesterday. But thinking about juggling work, taking care of the girls, having so little time with each of them at night..it had me wishing I could just throw the towel in and say, this working thing isn't for me. Of course we don't have that option, and I don't know if I'd be happy staying at home all the time. I am incredibly thankful to have my parents here helping us though. It made the day pass by a little more quickly to have my mom call me with updates on how Mikaela was doing throughout the day. And coming home to a home cooked meal and my mom waiting outside for me and Naomi, with Mikaela on her lap, is definitely the best way to be greeted.
Mikaela did well yesterday by the way. She fought the bottle initially, but by the end of the day she was taking it without a fuss. She definitely wore my mom out though! Hopefully today goes a little smoother for them.
