October 4
Yesterday was my first day back at work. At first I felt like I did on the first day of a new school year. I did great in the morning - I was excited to have adult conversation, think about interesting problems, and go out for lunch. Things turned for the worse in the afternoon. I all of a sudden REALLY missed Charlie. I heard it never really gets easier, but you get more used to it. I am thankful that I have the opportunity to only work 3 days a week, so when I really miss my boy it won't be too long until I get to spend the day with him again.

Don't worry, Stacy, it will get betterses.

It sounds like you did relatively well. You should be really proud of yourself. I thought the worst part was walking out the door - I'd feel just sick inside. And also, at lunch I'd always see stay at home moms with their kids in the park. I'd try to rationalize it - I'd think "if I can do this now it will be so much easier when she goes off to school." But there's nothing rational about it. I know Dan experiences some of the same feelings when he is at work, but he is way better at not letting it overwhelm him. I hope you do get used to it quickly and just think, your days off will seem that much sweeter!
