I suppose I should let all my faithful readers know that I am now back at work and am having a wonderful time. I had no idea motherhood would be this hard and now I find that going to work is a joy in my life. It's not that I don't love Miles, because he means the world to me and I do love to see his smile and now hear his laugh. He is growing so fast and I look forward to the day he discovers a slide or learns how to tie his own shoe. Nevertheless, I digress. One really hard part about being a stay-at-home mom is the lack of social interaction. Suddenly I was faced with a little person who couldn't communicate with me nor I with him. All I knew was that he wanted something and sometimes I, apparently, didn't have what he wanted. Now I come to work, I speak to people, I solve problems, and I pick up a boy at the end of the day who has been surrounded by toys and other babies all day long and is generally happy and tired.
I just want to say good job to all those people out there who dedicate their lives to raising and teaching children.
