I wondered how it would go. Maeve is tired, but settling into "her school" fairly well, I think. I avoided calling the daycare on her first day because I couldn't bear to know if she was having a bad day... but, the other two days this week, I called for play-by-plays a couple of times. She still needs to nap better, but overall, she's adjusting well.
I wondered how work would affect me, now that I am a mom. I have always thought that our patients' parents are rock stars... now, I'm blown away by them. These parents watch us do horrible things to their children in the hopes of cure. I don't want to imagine being in their shoes. Their love for their children is palpable. I think having Maeve is going to make me a better nurse -- I hope, anyway.
