It’s a big day for Bristol Palin! One month after giving birth to her daughter Sailor Grace, the mother of two is headed back to work.
“Back to real life today,” the daughter of former Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin confirmed the end of her maternity leave on Instagam. In the photo, which Palin shared with her thousands of followers, the 25-year-old single mother struck a pose with little Sailor, who was nestled away in her seat carrier, and her son Tripp.
“I was fortunate enough to take the last month off to stay home with my babies,” she continued. “Today marks the first time I’ve left SailorG, but I could not be more thankful she’s in the best of hands!!”
Palin, who gave birth to Sailor Grace on Dec. 23, will be returning to her job as a doctor’s assistant for a dermatologist, People magazine reports. In July 2015, Palin celebrated her six-year anniversary working at the doctor’s office located in Anchorage, Alaska.
“Celebrated six years working for the best people I know. This place is my home,” Palin captioned the celebratory work selfie before quipping, “[I] actually have a job #shocker.”
In 2013, Palin wrote a “Wife Swap” blog post for ABC where she discussed her daily schedule, including her job at the dermatologist office. According to Palin, her day begins at 4:30 a.m. but she doesn’t leave for work until two hours later. “Then it’s an hour commute for me into Anchorage for work,” she explained.
“I do my hair, wear makeup and high heels to work but I don’t find the need to do it 24/7,” the mother said. For Palin’s first day back on the job, the excited mom sported a sleek black outfit, which she paired with a chunky statement necklace and alligator print flats.
