Making the Most of Maternity Leave

WBeach

With 3 weeks left of my maternity leave, I’m taking in every moment and enjoying this precious time with my baby boy who is almost 10 weeks (YIKES…they really do grow up so fast). He will never ever again be this small and I will never have this much time to spend with him.

In the spirit of living in the present and making the most of every day, we ventured to the beach today for a mini Spring Break as the older kids are currently on break from school. My dear friend Jill invited us out to a beach house and after sunscreen, baby sunglasses, rash guard and hat, W was ready to hit the beach. (My half Cuban son definitely DOES NOT take after his mommy…he is 100% pale…) It was a ton of fun he won’t remember and I’ll never forget. πŸ˜‰

Lucky to live in Florida and enjoy this fabulous weather. Cheers to many more beach trips. Next time with daddy and our sweet Boston Terrier, Lucille Ball.

For next few weeks, I am trying to plan a daily activity from lunch with friends to walks in the park before it’s back to the grind. My goal is to be described as one of my friends’ described another woman today during our waterside chat — “She is a bad ass. A career woman who has her shit together and really balances work and family.” Here’s hoping that I come close to being described that way moving forward. It’s gonna be quite the ride…

XoXo,

Ivette
