I think if you would have asked me year ago, I would have said that I would either never do maternity leave, or maybe maximum a month. Even though a part of me still feels that way, because I genuinely love working. Especially if I am doing fun projects, or fun brands. I think it’s the fomo / control freak inside of me. But to be honest, I feel ready. I know it won’t be for very long. But it will still be for a couple of months. My boss and I haven’t decided for how long just yet, we are going to take it as it comes, depending on how Maddox is doing and how he is as a kid. But I’ll still join for the needed meetings as we have the extremely amazing opportunity coming up! and I really really really hope it will fall through. It would be life changing and I’m 100% sure that Maddox will understand. haha
But anyways, what I want said with this. Is that it will feel weird getting used to. Not having somewhere to go everyday. I probably won’t even notice nor think about it as soon as Maddox arrives. But for the upcoming 2,5 weeks until his due date, I think I will probably have 200 crisis.
I think these weeks and months will give me so much perspective on life. I think it will good for me. Scary, but good for me. But today, I am pulling my last one. and then I’m done! And I have a weekend with Oscar all for myself. Which could be our last one…. LAST ONE! Just the two of us. Now, thats an even scarier thought!
