Back to Work

It’s my first day back at work after maternity leave.

Somewhat sleep deprived, I arrive at my office just before 9AM. I sit down in my swivel chair and turn on my computer, then go get some coffee from the kitchen. I check my email first. Nothing new. Not too many people know I’m back yet. I get started on my first project.

Then suddenly, it hits me: I’m still in my pajamas.

Not only that, Ms. Four is watching Sesame Street just behind me and Ms. Baby is sleeping in her bouncy seat about four feet away.

I’m at home. I’m working.

I love my job.
