Today, after almost a year of maternity leave, I am back at work and it feels so sad. I know I am very lucky to have had the option to stay home and look after my daughter for so long but after spending almost every moment together for the last one year, I left home this morning with a heavy heart.
We are lucky to have my parents here to look after Chhori in my absence but it doesn’t make it any easier on my heart.
This morning when I was getting ready for work, Chhori saw me getting dressed and thought that we were going out together. She wanted me to hold her so I did and she even waved good bye to my mum. Poor baby thought she is going out with me.
Before coming to work, I asked her to kiss me and she happily obliged. Here is our happy snap from the morning.
I know this is the normal course of life and I have little choice but I miss her so much. It will be a hard few days for both of us before we get used to the situation.

Uff I’m SOOO far behind with your posts – but I’m looking forward to catching up with as many of them as possible over the next few days. Prepare for an onslaught of likes and comments from me!
I hope you will find something :), please let me know, I am curious now 🙂
I am looking forward to your comments 🙂
It’s soo hard to leave them after spending a full year at home.
So true 😦
You can do this 🙂
Thank Lili 🙂
I am just happy that both my wife and I can work from home. Sure when we are too busy my parents watch our son but we still can spend more time with him than it would be possible with full time jobs
How lucky are you guys. Wish I had the option and I will have taken it in heartbeat. Unfortunately both of us need to go out for work.
I worked as well till some time ago full time at a company. However my wife and i started our own little business last summer and now it is slowly getting better 🙂
How good is to work for yourself. All the best. I am sure things will get better and better 🙂
Wow, she has grown over the year! 🙂 And it’s been already a year?! You both will get used to the new routine in a while, good luck!
Yap is is almost one. Yap first few weeks and both of us will be okay:)
It’s really hard. Hang in there. Soon you will realize that it is best for both of you. Hugs ☺
Thank you dear 🙂
I can imagine this is a really hard time. I sm sure the days will seem long for awhile but eventually seeing her will be the special moments to look forward to, as well as times with your husband. Chhori is a sweet baby and will always be close to her parents and grandparents, too. What a blessing! ♡♡♡
Thank you Robin, I never imagined life will be so different with a baby but it is definitely a happy one 🙂
