Today is my first day back to work since having Quinn. 12 weeks on the button. Since most employers don't offer maternity leave the best you can get is 12 weeks thanks to Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA) If you qualify and can afford to take it unpaid. Luckily I did and we could.

It was hard to leave this morning, but not as bad as the last several days leading up to going to work. Just knowing it was coming, looming over me, was hard.

Since work is very close to home, I'm able to come home at lunch, feed Quinn and spend a little time with him. 

It's also the first time in awhile I've been gone and Leki noticed. He came right up on the pillow, laid down and pushed Quinn out of his way slightly. That's the most he's ever touched the baby so far. He was even purring.
