Hi Ho Hi Ho It's off to Work I go

My time as a stay at home mom is coming to an end. I have been off for 12 weeks, Naomi has been home for 2 months and with me for about 11 weeks. It has been a privilege to be home with my kids, the consistency has been so wonderful. I love to be the one who gets to drop them off and pick them up from school, help with homework, snuggle up in the afternoon and read them books . . . It just feels so good/right for us. That being said, don't think there aren't days when I think I might go crazy. I have only worked 20/wk since Zachy was born. I work with great people and they are more than flexible. Grandma and one of my best of friends (we met in 1st grade) will be with the kids. I keep telling myself it will be O.K. and It will. In the mean time my tummy is in knots. Keep us in your thoughts for next Tuesday . . . thanks.

Hi Amy,
I know how you feel. I so dread the day when I have to go back to work. It could be worse I suppose. I lost my job 6 months before leaving for China...yup was in the mortgage business...enough said :) I have to start looking for a new job...DOUBLE YUCK! I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you and your entire family adjusts to your new schedule. And guess what? I showed Halainah a few of Naomi's pictures tonight just like you did. And I was simply AMAZED. Halainah started to talk to Naomi. She went right over to the screen and started to touch her face. She has never responded like that to anyone's picture. Wow do I wish we lived closer.
Prayers to your family,
Deanna
