Currently I am embracing change. Or at least trying to hang in there enough to get by because today is incredibly bittersweet.
Yesterday we said our goodbyes to Mr. Sinks with extra special toots from Aidan. Today we look towards June with an end to his deployment in sight.
Yesterday marked the end of my maternity leave. Today is my new normal.
Yesterday I slept until the baby woke up, wore yoga pants, and prepared for my first day away from Aidan. Today is a day with an alarm, dress pants, and adaptation.
I'm not exactly sure how well this will all go. I'm sure I'll cry but hopefully it will be behind my office door. I bet I'll find chocolate. And it's likely that I call my mom twenty times before noon. Hopefully Aidan will eat, play, and sleep as usual. Hopefully he will enjoy his day with his grandparents and enjoy his evening with me when I return. And hopefully, this day will move quickly.
