Our daycare reached out and we are making plans to go back. I have so many feelings about this.
I have absolutely missed having a chunk of time away from the baby everyday…AND I have grown use to spending all day with the baby and will miss having that.
I look forward to going back to our apartment…AND I worry about life without backyards to play in like we have now.
I look forward to not having to live with my parents/in-laws…AND I want to cry when I think we may not see them again for quite a while.
Life has definitely been altered because of CV. My parents are high-risk and risk-averse in general. Living in a geography with a winter climate, and without a car, and in a dense city, I’m not sure if we’ll find a way to safely visit them. At the same time…I really want to start trying for a new baby and don’t feel into the idea of being pregnant and not living in my own house on a permanent basis. So we will go back in August. I think the baby will be very happy with it, R will certainly be very happy with it, and I will likely adjust. But, I really worry for my parents and how they cope.
