I start back to work tomorrow after a 5 month family leave. How do you get through the first day?

I hope it went well. It's really tough on the first day. Tougher for you than the child I think! The first day is the hardest. I have started doing maternity coaching for Mums returning to work. Do you think that would have helped you?

I found that it helped to have lots of pics on hand to look at if I got a chance at all. Also my wonderful babysitter was nice enough to take pics throughout the day on her cell phone and send them to me a few times a day just so I felt somewhat connected. Also I used to carry one of her onsies in my work bag because I could smell her on it and it was really very calming. I hope something here helps just a little bit!

First, wont be easy because you will have lots of adjustment. But dont worry it will be easy since that your been working with the same company. Good luck.
