The last day of maternity leave

I can't believe this day has come. It seems like just yesterday I was waddling around at the store, feet too swollen to wear anything but flipflops. I wanted to come back this week, because I knew it would be a short week and that things would be busy. Hopefully too busy to think about crying. I'm going to cry as much as I can today to keep me from tears tomorrow. It is the week of Thanksgiving and I am so thankful for so much. More than ever I am thankful for my family, thankful for our health, our closeness, our friends. I am trying to focus on all of this. Please pray for me to be strong.

Here is Matilda breaking all of the Bumbo rules, but she was under parental supervision!

I will be praying for you and if you cry all day don't feel silly, my very best friend cried all day when she had to go back to work, I'll be praying for strength for you!
