I've come to believe that nothing truly prepares you for motherhood. We had the books, the support from our families, a fantastic doctor and a beautiful nursery. What I wasn't ready for was how I would feel once things settled down.
Will I have the same energy, drive and interest in my work? Is my baby going to miss me? These are just a few of the questions racing through my head as I prepare to return to what was once second nature -- work.
