This summer has been the Summer of change for me. I had my son in May, then lost my job at the beginning of August and now am opening my own shop. This Summer has been filled with so many blessings, even ones that were in disguise.
As I write this, I know that in 9 hours I will be sitting in a classroom and this Summer will be over for me. At this point, I am genuinely distraught because I don't want it to end. The end means spending at least 2 hours away from Peanut everyday and it breaks my heart. I really don't know how mom's that have to put their children in daycare for 8 hours a day do it. I wish so badly that I didn't have to leave him, but tomorrow morning, I do.
To top everything off, we have thrush again so neither of us feel terribly great. Also, my milk supply went down because I wasn't pumping as much lately, so they last few days I have been pumping a lot more and it is almost unbearable with the thrush, but I pretty much have to so that my supply stays up while I am away from Peanut.
Does anyone have any advice to make this easier? Even just a little? I would appreciate it.
