It was 4 years ago that I sat in the office furiously trying to tie up lose ends on my last day of work before maternity leave. A colleague popped their head in the doorway and asked what I was still doing here and shouldn’t I be having a baby yet? I replied – ‘yes I will tomorrow’. Wouldn’t that be funny was the reply. ‘No really, I am tomorrow’. K was breach and a scheduled C-section. We had found out a couple days prior and tried having her flipped with no luck – she was too stubborn to move! Somehow it all worked out though. I put in my last day of work as scheduled and the next morning our life changed forever.
It seems like yesterday, yet at the same time like a lifetime ago. My little girl is so big now.
