Staying Home

I've always been a worker. I was the odd kid who the second I could get a workers permit I got a job. I even worked before that (under the table for neighbors and such). I actually always really liked having a job and liked working. I never really thought about what I would do once I had kids (because I never thought I would get married and have kids). I guess that I thought once I had kids I would find a way to continue to work...and here I sit with two kids (so amazing) and I am not planning on working.
Part of me is nervous to be home so much and worried that I will get a little "cabin fever", but for right now I have so much peace about this stage of my life. I can't wait to spend so much time with my two girls and get to see them grow and develop.
I did apply for a job teaching online, but I did not get it. Yes, a part of me feels the sting of rejection and feels like that is a direct shot to my teaching ability...but I am trying not to take it personally. It's a rough year in education.
Part of me is now worried about money and insurance, but my ever trusting husband keeps telling me to trust and not to worry - it always works out. It's just such a different position for me to be in and I am so excited for the adventure to begin!!

Remember, you are working. You have the most important job of all... and the payoff is WAY better than money. I know it's hard to think of as "work" but it really is, isn't it?

after staying home full-time since the end of january, i am SO sad to be going back to work part-time now, even though it's just 7:15-11:45 AM. it's an absolutely wonderful experience to be so fully devoted to your kiddos--enjoy every moment! seems like you guys are doing really well..hope to see all of you sometime soon!
