Twenty Days.

Twenty days left of maternity leave.


Hard to believe.  Time has gone by exceedingly fast this time around.  I’m excited to return to work and a little sad.  I really have enjoyed every minute that I’ve been home with everyone.  But it’s time to start earning some real money again. It’s time to be a doctor again. Life has to get back to the new normal.

The baby is going to be six months old on the weekend.  He’s finally starting to take some cereal (okay, so it’s only been two days), but he’s still getting up at least once, if not twice a night.  I am really hoping for a miracle over the next few weeks – I need this baby to sleep through the night.  Sure, husband will be doing the night feedings once I start back to work, but let’s be honest, baby wakes up so I wake up.  Fuzzy brain does not a good doctor make.

In the meantime, I am going to take advantage of the next few weeks I have left.  I’ve already done a huge purge of my closet – clothes I haven’t worn in years, since before my first pregnancy, have gone to Goodwill. I am starting to go online to the electronic medical record more often to read up on patients.  I am reading more medical related stuff.  I am mentally preparing for work.

Twenty days.
