You may have noticed that I wasn't around much this week - hopefully some of you did! I will admit that things were more than just a little bit crazy this week, and I'm just trying to figure it all out.
Up until last week, I've been a stay-at-home-mom, not working outside of the home since I was 3 months pregnant with my oldest. Being a stay-at-home-mom allowed me to raise my children, enjoy every moment and milestone with them, and be a regular and active volunteer at their school.
My children are now 12 1/2 and 9 1/2, and I just stepped back into the workforce. I took a position in the Title Room at my daughter's elementary school. This is the same school where I have been a volunteer and PTO member since my son started Kindergarten there, 8 years ago. This year my son moved to the junior high, so sadly he's no longer in the same school.
As you can imagine - I'm trying to figure out a whole new routine and schedule and I'm finding that managing my time is going to take some adjusting! I no longer have all day long to do my laundry, go grocery shopping, run errands, and do my regular workouts. I know that it will take me a little bit of time to "figure it out," but I'm hoping that it won't take too long!
I'm actually very excited about my upcoming Holiday Gift Guide! My first item arrived today, so stay tuned!
Do you have any tips or advice for a newly "back to work" Mom?
