Quick notes

Day two of the new job. LOVING it. Hopefully this will be one of those blessings in disguise. Getting away from the CRAZY that I worked for and finding a completely unexpected and great opportunity. Fingers crossed!

Plus, I just feel alive again! I realized how much my identity is tied to my work....which isn't a GREAT thing, but it is a reality of life as a single mom.

Anyway, I just want to encourage everyone to support each other in these tough times. I am lucky to have a new job, but know many others that are not as lucky right now. Say prayers, keep ears open for job opportunities for others, etc.

Mommy Confessions

Just a few thoughts:

  • I miss rocking my baby to sleep every night.
  • I miss mornings spent watching Sesame Street or Elmo's World.
    I miss baby food and bottles.
  • I miss picking him up from daycare and having him run to me like I was the best thing on Earth. Before he was too cool.
  • I miss listening to The Wiggles in the know, the days before Z107 and Y98 were requested.
  • I miss leisurely weekends spent playing at the park, before there were baseball and soccer practices.

I miss those relaxed days of toddlerhood. I don't they don't seem relaxed at the time, but life changes so quickly with children. I am a mere 5 years away from teenage years, and judging from the last few years, these next few will fly by. Hug those babies and kiss those cheeks. :)

New beginnings

I guess that is kind of an oxymoron; I mean it wouldn't be a beginning if it wasn't new, right? Anyway, I've accepted a new job. I will share more about it soon, but wanted to thank you for the prayers! I hope this will be a good career move and that life will be back on track!
