Good because let's face it, staying at home with a baby all day can get very tiring and monotonous, and you start craving adult conversations that do not involve nappies, mashed food or teething. Plus it's nice to be able to go to the bathroom on my own, drink coffee without the baby trying to pull the mug off my hands, and eat my food while it's still warm. Oh and of course the mental stimulation of doing something productive is welcome too.
Bad because, well isn't it obvious? I hate the thought of not having Luca with me all day. We're hardly ever apart, my little sidekick and I. And the poor little dragon (I call him dragon as he was born in the year of the Dragon) had a bit of a fever yesterday and today, so it was hard leaving him when he was clearly unwell. But he was being looked after by his grandmas so I knew he was in good hands. Still, I kept thinking about him all day and kept ringing home all day to check on him.

Oh and of course I have his photos up on my workstation which helps.

The main thing is we both survived the separation, and I'm only going to be working 3 days a week so it'll be a good balance to have. I'll still be able to feel like my normal self, but also get to spend a lot of time with my son and hopefully not miss out on too many of his milestones.
And where does blogging fit in with all of this? Nap times and after hours of course! I've always worked best when I've had a lot of things on my plate, and seriously after having a baby you start working even better and faster as your time management skills just improve. So I'll still be blogging away. At times my posting may slow down but I'll still be around so thank you for your continued support!
