Working Mom

So this is my 2nd week at my job. It's getting easier and I don't feel so out of place anymore. I still don't like working, I'd rather be home, but at least it's less than 20hrs a week and it won't be for too long. One of my supervisors asked me the other day if I had another job during the day too, I told her, "Yes, I'm a mom." :) Believe me, being a mom and homemaker is definitely a job. It is kind of nice to have a small amount of time where I don't have to be taking care of the kids, plus it is giving hubby an opportunity to get closer to the boys and learn how to take care of them better (he now understands why the house is always so messy lol).

I'm missing my 2yr old today. Sure it's nice not to be following him around cleaning up messes, but I just want to hug him and cuddle him a bit. I'm so used to taking care of him 24/7 that I feel like part of me is missing, or I'm forgetting something. He's having fun down at my family's house though, I'm sure the girls are spoiling him terribly. :) Man, I'm starting to cry now, and he's only been gone 3 days!

Awww, it's ok Kara. *hugs* He'll be back soon enough. They will give him back right? ;)

Yes, being a mom is definitely a job. Two jobs actually according to Dr. Phil. I'm glad you don't feel so out of place at work, that helps a lot I bet.

Absence makes the heart grow fonder.. or so they say :) I know how much you must miss him though.

I'm glad you're liking the new job better. It's a nice break for you to be able to get out and have adult conversations ;)
