Okay, there’s something that really baffles me. (Well, actually, a lot of things, but I’m just talking about one particular thing here.) And that’s women who go back to work shortly after having a baby.
How do they do it? I’m not talking about “how can they live with themselves leaving their baby behind” or anything like that. I’m talking about how, physically, do they manage to do such a thing? I’ve heard of women going back to work at SIX WEEKS postpartum. Sheesh, I hadn’t even vacuumed the house by that time. Even at ten weeks, some days I feel like I’m just barely functioning (usually after he’s had a night of waking up every 2 hours). Going back to work so soon just sounds to me like a recipe for insanity.
