This past Sunday was my first day back at work after just over a year. It was a little strange but also comforting to return to such a familiar place. I’ve been working for the company for almost 6 years with many of the same people. It was wonderful to see co-workers that I haven’t spoken to since I went out on bed rest last January. It was funny to see peoples reactions to me at work, I got quite a few double takes.
Even more funny was the reaction of people that didn’t know I was pregnant let alone with triplets. There was a bit of shock and a lot of well wishes. It kept me in high spirits as I went through my nearly 4000 emails (control+delete is my friend). I’m working part time which is great because I can keep my benefits, but we won’t need to put the boys in daycare. The downside is that three nights a week I put the boys down for their third nap and don’t see them again until the next morning. We are slowly starting to drop the third nap, which may mean I’ll be sneaking out.
At least I get greeted by three smiling faces in the morning, which makes it all worth it. The boys seem to have adjusted to me being gone a few nights a week. I’m still trying to adjust the schedule change for me, I get home from work after 11 and the boys are not really into sleeping in. It will probably take a couple weeks for me to get into the swing of things, but I’ll get there.
