This time last year I was nervously contemplating my return to work. I was worried on all kinds if levels, anxiety making me shaky and uncertain. I wasn't sure if I was physically or mentally up to going back. Bubba was still up 3-4 times a night, still on about 3 feeds a day.

In terms of work, I was worried I'd missed everything that was ever important, that I'd be out of the loop professionally or socially. I'd seen a couple of friends from work a few times but there were many who I'd spent hours and hours of my life with that I never heard from in the whole 9 months. I was worried I'd been replaced, usurped and was no longer needed. This last concern was actually real as I was denied my old job back as apparently a job-sharing manager is not possible. Even if the CEO of GoldmanSachs can manage it...
