I am officially a working mom, i got my first job since having kids on Monday November 7th! I am going to be a front end cashier at Wal Mart and i couldn't be more excited to start! There are going to be small changes for our family but in the end it will help us a lot. I am going to be working nights and weekends so that we rarely need a sitter and won't have to pay for a sitter! That means all the money i make is getting banked for our new house unless we need it for a bump in the road along the way!
I am excited that i wont be missing my kids every day things, and i'll still be able to attend field trips if i find a sitter for Tyler. I'll still be able to take my little girl to dance because as of now i asked for Tuesdays off! I'll still be taking Kelsee and picking her up from Kindergarten, so we'll get to talk about her day before i go to work! Mommy will still have dinner most nights with her family instead of having to eat alone at work!
I will miss bedtime though, we both switch kids every other night to read to and tuck into bed. I'll miss my goodnight kisses from my kids and husband but, i know i'll get them before i go to work! I'm gonna miss my me time at night after everyone goes to bed because i'll be at work most nights or too exhausted to stay up!
Kelsee is having a hard time with me going back to work but i really think after it happens she will realize its not that bad. On weeknights i will only be gone a couple hours before she goes to bed and the rest of the time she'll be asleep. But how do you explain this to a almost 6 year old so that she will understand and not be so upset about it? I don't think it will effect Tyler as much because he's still little that as long as daddy is there to tuck him in he'll be ok! Other then getting a job nothing else is new...just same stuff every day!!! lol I love my family!!!
