Dreams To Do

Wise Words Wednesday: Day by Day

“Don’t look back on happiness, or dream of it in the future. You are only sure of today; do not let yourself be cheated out of it.” – Henry Ward Beecher


For the past 12 weeks I’ve been immersed in my family. I’ve woken up throughout each night to comfort my newborn and snuggle my toddler. I’ve rolled out of bed, poured myself some coffee, and thoroughly enjoyed doing nothing but caring for my babies all morning. And maybe having a shower mid-day. The only stress I’ve had to deal with has come from baby cries and potty training. It has been AMAZING.

Tomorrow I say “good bye” to playing stay at home momma and “hello again” to work. My heart is aching. The longest I’ve been apart from Landon has only been a few hours to go to a movie. I’m freaking out a little. Now I won’t get to see him for a whopping 40 hours each week! How the heck do I do this?

One day at a time. Day by day by day…

Last week I was a complete mess at times thinking about how my sweet baby bonding time is coming to an end. Over the last few days I have just been sucking up every ounce of quality family time I can get. As of right now I feel okay. I’m really trying to just focus on the present moment and not think too much about what’s to come.

But oh how I’m going to miss my little chunk…


God give me strength.

  • Oh girl, I know how you feel 🙁 It’s so hard leaving them and it’s just as hard no matter how many kids you have. Hang in there!

  • he is such a snuggle bug!! i feel your pain – I work full time and commute an hour each way to work and it suck sometimes! going back to work….i did ok and then had a meltdown about 2 weeks in…and then it got better. it’s hard but you can do it! it just makes the time you have with them that much more special.

  • I started back to work today. 3 more hours to go. So far i’m doing good with being away… but i can’t say how i will feel when it really hits me. I think today i’m happy to be out of the house!

  • Going back to work is the WORST! I remember feeling like it was so “unnatural” and that I was doing something wrong. I felt so guilty.

    But….now my boys are in school where I work and they are perfectly well adjusted…so no harm done.

    Good luck on the transition! I know it will be hard!

  • Thanks so much for the comments ladies! You don’t even know how much that made me feel better! And today is going pretty darn good so far. I’ve managed to hold back all tears! Taking it one day at a time. New post to come soon. 🙂
