There is no doubt about it: Dr. Temperance Brennan (Emily Deschanel) has a very important job at the Jeffersonian. She’s highly intelligent, extremely specialized, and let’s face it: There are not too many people in the entire world who can do what she does.

So, even though Dr. B just gave birth to little Christine as recently as last week’s episode, we understand her feeling the need to return to work as soon as possible. But did she go back to work too soon?

Of course, it certainly appears that some time has passed after Brennan gave birth. Christine looks to be about a month old, at least, so it’s not like Brennan just picked up and went back to work at the Jeffersonian a few days after popping out a kid.

That said, Brennan does seem to miss being around her baby daughter quite a bit. Is she letting her obligations to the Jeffersonian get in the way of what she truly wants — or do you think that Brennan has managed to strike up a pretty impressive balance between work and motherhood?
