so, when i had leslie i couldn’t even imagine leaving her to go back to work. it was hard, but we made some adjustments so that i could stay home with her. we were lucky. really lucky. and then lucy came along. and we tightened our belts a little more and somehow still survived on one income. and then a job offer literally fell in my lap. so we thought about it and prayed about it. a lot. and i decided that i was ready to re-enter the working world. mostly because the bills are starting to pile up (new windows are e.x.p.e.n.s.i.v.e.) and we’re getting close to the time that the girls will both be in school. and i know that i’ve done a good job (on most days) with our girls. i know what a blessing it’s been for me and for them to be able to stay at home with them. i know that they’ll love being in “school” with other kiddos. but i also know how much i’m going to miss them. and i know i’m going to feel guilty about leaving them. and i know that weekends will be spent cleaning, doing laundry, grocery shopping, and running all the errands i won’t be home to do during the week. no more waiting until noon to shower, staying in pajamas all day, or having random tea parties in the middle of the day with my two sweet girls.
so, work starts august 16th. life changes. we adjust. and hopefully it will be the right decision.
