Today was my first day at work. I woke up at 6:20 am (although I had been tossing and turning throughout the whole night --excitement perhaps? Nah, maybe it was because I had dairy too late in the night. Hahaha!) After waking, I took a shower, got mostly dressed, fed the baby and got him ready. Then I finished dressing. We left the house at 7:35 am and I was at work by 8:30 am.
Today was the first day I wore a suit since February 16th! I'm lucky that a) I had one to wear! I had brought my suits to the cleaners last week and forgot to pick them up over the weekend. I'm also lucky that b) the suit still fits! Yay! I didn't bother to try any of my suits on post-partum!
I have a new assignment at work and my new unit is very different from my old one. I'm still in court most of the time --and this is why I can never work from home. I'm in court 4 out of 5 days a week, but I no longer have to prepare for trials. It’s a pretty good assignment coming out of maternity leave because I won’t be too stressed out.
Today is the first day I have to juggle the whole ‘working and having kids’ thing so for my first day as a working mom, it wasn’t too bad.
Going to work was a little surreal for me because for the past 6 months, I haven't really done much except take care of the baby 24/7. I felt like it was the first day of school for me!
And speaking of rockstar baby, I think we made our first mistake with him last night: we shaved off his beautiful hair! All of it! We had a little “mohawk-gone-awry” incident -–we were fixing up his mohawk but the hubs used a very short blade and cut off more hair than he thought. So he had no choice but to even out the whole thing.
Rockstar baby looks more like a little Asian refugee now than a rockstar!! WAAH!! But I guess it’ll grow back in… Hopefully! But I told the hubs that he is never allowed to cut rockstar baby's hair ever! Well, not until after his first birthday!
