SHE'S WORKIN' NINE TO FIVE....WHAT A WAY TO MAKE A LIVIN'!
Ok....so the hours will be 8am-2pm M-Th and 8-12 on Friday's...AND both my kids will be with me....what in the world kind of job could that be?! Whelp - you are now looking at a new Preschool Director! That's right! I received a call about 2 months ago from Shepherd's preschool director saying that her family was moving....yada-yada-yada....2 months later and 2 interviews later....lots and lots of prayers (and even a few tears later)....I have been offered the position and accepted! And when I say "accepted"...that is truly what I mean. This job is truly an unexpected blessing - if you had asked me 3 months ago if I had any intention of going back to work, I would have laughed and said "no way!"...but here I am saying "Lord...if this is where you want me (and I truly believe it is) then I will go willingly and joyfully!".
Both Shepherd and Rauly will be able to attend the preschool for free and I will be able to monitor them all day every day - I don't think I could've taken a position had it been any other way. Keep in mind I have been a "stay-at-home-mom" for four years now and I can assure you that the control I've had over my children and their environment is very scary to give up - BUT - I know they'll be in a christian program with wonderful teachers and peers and I think it'll be a nice transition for both mommy and kiddo's! :) I will also be on a "teachers schedule" which means I'll get every major/minor holiday off...summers off....ect - SO - even if I still have this position when my kids go to elementary school, I will always be off when they are - you can't beat that!!
Fears...fears....fears...get behind me Satan! I've been reading my Bible and The Confident Woman by Joyce Meyer religiously over the past few days and am feeling MUCH better about going back to work! For all you working moms out there - give me advice because I know I'm going to need it!! Like how you remain organized and maintain a clean house and manage to wake up early every morning and look nice every day....my list of questions could go on and on....
Well, if you're still reading this (I'll be surprised if you are)...please pray that God blesses this decision and that the transition will be smooth! I start my training immediately! OH - and if you could, please keep your comments positive...no offense, but I really have no interest in hearing any negative feedback about this decision. :)
