reflections on mat leave (in haiku)

one and a half weeks
are left before i start school
it's gone by so fast!

these past seven months
have given me so much time
to get to know her.

we've bonded so well
breastfeeding's second nature
no formula here!

i cook all her food
nothing comes out of a jar
beets on the stove now.

i've also had time
to enter contests online
i've won many things!

four kinds of diapers
designer sunglasses, too
books and household things.

at first i thought that
daycare would give formula
i will pump instead.

leaving will be hard
harder for me than for her
but, we'll be ok.
