Goodbye maternity leave

I can't believe 4 months fly by so fast! I returned to work a week ago and it's been a bitter-sweet experience. Bitter because I miss just being at home with my son and witnessing the milestones 😦 - sweet because I get to be out of the house (child-free) and have adult conversations 🙂 …
