I returned to work last week, only 2 days a week but I must admit I have enjoyed going back. I guess it helps that I enjoy my job but honestly if you'd have asked me when I was pregnant if I would look forward to returning to work, my answer would have been something like this:
"No! I don't want to go back! I want to be a stay at home mum!"
I enjoy work because it is a nice break, for some adult time. Obviously, I miss our girls like crazy when I'm not with them, but it's nice to have some adult conversation.
Plus, it seems that I have now joined a new club!
The mummy club!
Yes! That's right!
Women who I have never spoken with before, now speak to me!
In fact, a group of 3 women almost pounced on me! Asking how I manage with twins, are they in nursery, do they sleep, you look great etc!
Does becoming a mum mean that I am suddenly emitting some kind of mum vibe that only other mums can't detect, meaning they hone in on me?!
I know I'm slightly taking the mic, but I do actually like being in this new club!
It doesn't take much to get me talking about our girls, so when the mummy club asked, I was more than happy to chat away!
How do/did you feel about returning to work?
