I keep hearing it gets easier, and we did really luck out with our caregivers, but still. Aside from missing her, I'm sad about all of the moments I'm anticipating missing in the future. What if her first crawl, steps, word...what if they're all had when I'm away at work and away from Lily?
I suppose I should, like my sister suggested, look on the bright side. I should be grateful that I have a job and a paycheck with which to help support our family, and I should be proud that Lily will one day appreciate the fact that both her parents worked and earned graduate degrees simultaneously. But it's hard. And I miss my little girl. And it's only day one. But I am grateful for this job and I am grateful that we found a clean, affordable, bi-lingual home day care. So I guess it's not so bad. And afterall, I have this face to go home to this afternoon.
Pretty great, huh?
On another note, the Mac people, geniuses that they are, have repaired my computer. I just need to pick it up. I'll be posting much more regularly again very soon. Thanks for reading, and for your patience!
