"Making the decision to have a child is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body." ~ Elizabeth Stone
I had always planned on going back to work, but I never DREAMED it would be this hard. I think this quote best captures what it truly feels like to be a parent.
Since Hudson was exclusively breastfed for 3 months, I wasn't huge on pumping (wish I would have been), and I was off work for 4 1/2 months and at home with him all day every day, to say I am attached is an understatement. I'd barely spent any amount of time away from him in 4 months.
It is so true that you can't imagine how much you can love something or someone until you have a child. You love your family and your spouse, but the love for a child is so different.
I thank God many times a day for this precious baby boy.
What did I ever do before he came along?? ; )
