Maternity Leave

A local page posted this image of a sculpture (artist unknown). The person it was shared from said the sculpture is entitled "Maternity Leave". Mamas, this imagery hit me HARD. This is how I felt while I was on maternity leave - it reminded me of how difficult it was to adjust to a new role while trying to maintain my old one. What do you think? Did being on Maternity Leave feel like this to you? If yes, how did you combat it?

When you stop working you'll stop seeing it as "your" money and "my" money is will be come "our" make sure you sit down and go over the bills together. It builds trust and respect.

Totally captures the sentiment. Maternity leave is a leave of absence from an office job- nothing more. Your older kids still need you πŸ‘¨β€πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§β€πŸ‘¦ 🍽 ⚾️ 🚘 πŸ“š, hubby takes off, what? A week?! πŸ’†πŸΎβ€β™€οΈ

I didn't feel like this until I went back to work but I remember how hard and frustrating it was. Very meaningful photo thank you for sharing!!
