So it's official. I am now a working Mom.
While I was pregnant I always had it in my head that I would start working towards the end of spring or beginning of summer. Which surprisingly actually happened! I wanted to try to wait till Rowe was around 6 months and eating solids. I figured it might be easier that way so we wouldn't be relying on just me pumping at work and having enough milk in the freezer. Although she is only eating rice cereal once or twice a day right now, I think its a start in the right direction.
I was unsure of how it would be going back to work after having Roweyn. The transition has been a little easier than expected. Of course I miss her like crazy when I am gone and I would love to just stay home with her all the time but Mama's gotta make some chedder. haha
This week was my first big week of being gone. We're still trying to make schedule adjustments but I'm working 5 hours on Mondays, Thursdays and possibly Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Rowe does pretty well with my Mom when I am gone but the past few nights after I get home she has been pretty fussy and I am assuming it's from me being gone.
I am trying to figure out ways to make it easier on her and help her adjust. If any of you working Moms have any suggestions I would love to hear them!
It feels great to be back in the hair world! I have missed it! Right now I am mainly assisting so I can get some "real world" salon training but will hopefully soon have a day of taking clients. :)
By the way I am working at BonBon Salon Spa in downtown Grass Valley. (If you click on the name it will take you to their facebook page. Make sure you click "Like"!) It's a wonderful salon and I am so excited to be working there. Hope you all can make it in sometime!
