Changes...

For the past eleven years, I have been a "stay-at-home" mom. I have loved it. I have loved being able to be at home with my babies and playing with them and loving them. But, you know, a funny thing happens with those babies... no matter how hard you try to keep them little, they grow up. In September, my littlest baby will be starting Kindergarten!

In my LBK (life before kids), I was a teacher. And, most days, I liked it. And, not to toot my own horn, but I was pretty good at it. SO... when I found out that our local elementary school was planning on adding another 2nd grade teacher, I stepped out of my little "stay-at-home mom" box, and applied for the job. And, I got it. I start on Monday.

My interview for this job was on January 27, 2010. EXACTLY 11 years ago TO THE DAY, January 27, 1999, was the last day I worked. Serendipity, don't you think????

Wish me luck. It is going to be a HUGE change for me, and an even bigger change for my little family!! But I am OH, SO READY for this change!!
