I really wonder HOW, like how do women manage to get back to work leaving their little kid at home? Zoey was 5 months and 13 days when I got back into my office work routine. My pact with my boss was simple. I get to bring Zoey to work or I do not join.
Working at a small place obviously has its perk. On the turn of celebrating her 6th monthaversary, Zoey became a young office going lady. Obviously, work takes more time for me now, but work has also taken an all new meaning. Every morning (apart from weekends) we have a rush hour and Zoey has also learnt the excitement and urgentness of it. Now that I look back I wonder how did I ever manage to work without a kid in my life.
When family and friends find out about my resuming work, I get raised eyebrow looks. I know everyone wonders how I manage to work, but Allah ka shukar, its done.
There are days when I have to leave Zoey home…and on those days work takes even longer, because my attention is divided between my work and my little monkey whose not hanging off me. And these are the days which make me wonder how women I know manage to leave their kid at home and go for work. Hats off to all these women!
