Back to life...back to reality...

Well, life as a Stay-At-Home Momma abruptly came to an end last Friday, when I happened to call the human resource department for my district and they gave me a job. A full time job. A full time job starting Monday morning. What?! So yes, I am once again a teacher. I have to admit, I have missed it. There's something so energizing about 28 smiles greeting you in the morning. And while I am physically exhausted and miss my at-home babies, I think they may have needed a break from their momma too.

Case in point:
Liss, after 13 tiresome months, decided that she was capable of sleeping through the night after all. We're on day 8 in a row. Not only that, but she has taken 2 naps every day for the last week, and decided that it was OK to be weaned after all. She's up to 3 English words: hi, out, and ball; but she seems to be fluent in Dog.
Miles, after days and days of trying and failing, just up and decided that riding a two-wheeler is no big thing, and just took off today.

 I'm so torn about life right now. I had so many unfinished projects! (I'm SUCH a procrastinator!) So many places we were going to go! I hate seeing my babies grow up so fast in a week. But I know I've been called to teach and I truly believe that this job fell into my lap for a reason.  God, give me us the strength to manage and enjoy both jobs. September will be here before we know it, and I'll be able to take my babies to the zoo.


  1. That is CRAZY fast!!! You can do it though, and I'm sure everyone will adjust. Congrats on the job!
    PS I recognized those little faces in the background! :)

  2. I love Ky Ky's face - cracks me up every time I see it. This picture is on my desk at work. ;)
