I'm officially a working mom again after surviving my first full work week. A few lessons I've learned this week:
1. Pumping in a Science lab supply closet is pretty interesting. Pipettes, beakers, the occasional odd item (a pair of sneakers, a volleyball, a case of microwave popcorn) all kept me company while I tried to envision my little pumpkin nursing. Visualization is supposed to increase your milk supply. Whatever.
2. Four hours of uniterrupted sleep truly is a luxury, and it's JUST enough to make it through the day. Of course, I was actually slurring my words by Thursday night and had to take a little nap just to make it to dinner.
3. I missed my work colleagues and my students, but they'd understand if I won the lottery and quit working tomorrow.
4. Coming home and getting a huge 3 month old grin makes it almost ok.
