Back at work
Published: Monday 2008-10-27.
After a fortnight’s paternity leave I am back at the office again. Even if only for a couple of days a week while I use up the remains of the vacation I didn’t take this summer, but it still feels a bit weird. The feeling is a bit mixed, in part it feels like I am missing out on valuable time by not being at home, but in part it also feels good that life is returning to normality, despite the big changes that have happen.
I am looking forward to the “real” paternity leave next summer, when I am going to be at home for eight weeks, plus the vacation. Alone. I guess that is when it will finally dawn on me what it means being a parent, the concept is still a bit abstract, the fact that suddenly a little girl has moved into our lives.
