Back To Work!

Yo Peeps, this Mama went back to work this week!
A job came up on my radar and after much thought...all of 10 minutes, I decided to throw my hat in the ring. Low and behold, this SAH Mama was offered a great opportunity to be back in the rat race and I made the leap from thinking about it to accepting the job.
J.O.B....yeah, that's right...
I've previously blogged about losing our Fla contracts and this job came up just after losing them. So I took it as a sign and decided to dive back into the work force after 14 years of being home.
I visited several preschool for EG and fell in love with only one. They offered me a trial day and I gave it a whirl. I sat home and watched from the cameras most all day and when I saw how happy she was, I literally cried. I'm in awe of how far she's come. She has never been away from me with strangers and done well, never. I'm amazed at how well she's done. She is excited to go and couldn't wait to pack her "backpack" the night before. Daddy takes her and Mommy picks her up. The best part of my day is picking her up. Her school is right across the street and I am there at exactly 5:05 to scoop her up when she comes running with a huge smile yelling, "MOMMY"!!! I never imagined she would have been this secure away from me. It was only 3 months ago when I couldn't leave her in a gym playroom to get an hour workout in! I am blown away...she is my hero and she continually amazes me.
My new position in life is an asset special*ist and after watching the Bachel0r tonight, I decided that I should have been a life c0ach. That dude's life c0ach is getting paid way to much for hanging out in the tropics just waiting for the phone to ring. Seriously....I totally missed my calling.
So as if this lil' blog wasn't neglected enough already, it's about to be neglected even more. I'm not real sure how I'm going to fit everything in with 4 kids...not sure at all, but I'm going to give it a whirl. EG is doing great at school, but of course she's only on day 3 and I do expect for there to be some really bad days ahead, but for now, I am totally impressed with her willingness to
experience the newness of life without holding my hand and having me right there. I'm on a high just thinking back 20 months ago and how far she's come.
