I have separation anxiety.
Funny thing, I didn’t have this with K1 as my maternity leave came to an end.
But as time ticks away and as my first day back at works nears, I realize how much I miss K2 already.
Is this normal? To feel it for one and not the other? What’s the difference? What makes the situations different? Does it get easier?
I was famous, still am in a way, for saying I couldn’t be a stay at home mom. With K1, that statement was incredibly true. I couldn’t wait to go back to work. Perhaps it was because I was a new (in every sense of the word) mom. Or perhaps it’s because I was younger and didn’t have the patience I have now.
*shrugs* I have no idea what the difference is, why I feel this way now, but it’s hard.
I’m not one to cry (much) over things I can’t change. Life is what it is. And because this is what it is, I’ll say I’m happy and grateful for the time I had with K2. And maybe, just maybe, things will change where I can be home more for both my girls.
