As I write this you are fast asleep, taking your daily nap. Typing as quietly as possible to try and not wake you up. I have recently accepted an offer for a new job as a parent educator, my first professional job and it is both exciting and nerve wracking. I am grateful that I got the chance to wait until you were a little older before going back to work, but at the same time I wonder if I should have waited a little longer. There are some who are luckier than I, and got to stay at home until their kids were 10 years old! Honestly though, I don’t think I could have stayed at home for that long without going stir crazy at home, so maybe I’m the lucky one.
Either way, whatever it is someone chooses to do it is up to them and I hope I am making the right decision. I am going to miss seeing you all day and watching you grow up, but I will have you all to myself on the weekends and after work. Your dad also got a new job and funny enough we both start on the same day. With our work schedules it feels as if we will not see each other as much because when he goes off to work in the morning I won’t see him, and then when I come home he still won’t be home. When he works nights I might not see him either because he goes to work right as I am coming home.. That schedule is definitely going to taking some getting used to. Luckily my hours don’t really change so when he is off we can see each other for a little bit.
I am sorry I haven’t written as much but perhaps I will have some time at work to write some things when there is nothing to do.
