Last Wednesday, I went into my office to tell my boss that I wasn’t planning on coming back from maternity leave. I was incredibly nervous but knew this was what we really wanted for our family.
My boss wasn’t surprised at all. Apparently, most people assumed I wouldn’t be returning. She wasn’t sure of the details HR would be able to give so I’m still waiting on that information before I can feel like things are settled. She asked if I’d be willing to come in for a few hours at a time to train my replacement if necessary. Only a few hours and I’d get paid? Ok! I offered to temp if they need someone in the future so that might be a possibility.
I’m feeling so relieved that this task is over and we can look forward to a lot of time together as a family!
