|I took this picture of Jake and Kate today and I absolutely LOVE it! It was her first snowfall of the year and she loved playing in the snowflakes :)|
Find a job.
That's one of the things on my mind lately.
Do I want to?
Yes and No. I want to be able to actually afford a house, instead of drooling over houses we can only dream about. Right now the houses we can afford (on the North Shore of MA) are the ones that look like they need to be torn down immediately before the wind blows them over. Depressing.
It would also be nice to join the adult world again.
But that's what makes the thought of a job so scary to me. How am I supposed to spend 4 1/2 years surrounded by my babies- poop, spit-up, toys, potty training, cooking, more poop, cleaning, the list could go on FOREVER- and then suddenly have to jump into the adult world and be expected to act like an adult?? After becoming a mom, my social skills disappeared. I don't know what happened. Now I am awkward and uncomfortable and don't really know what to do with myself.
I am nervous that I won't be good at my new job (if I can even get one!). I didn't graduate college. I don't have a career to go back to. I still don't even know what I want to be when I grow up.
My husband thinks I should waitress. Definitely not on the top of my list.
I don't know what kind of evening job a 25 year old mommy of 3 can get besides working at Target (do you get a discount if you work there?? Maybe that would be a good choice! In the words of my 4 year old, "I wish we could live at Target!" HA!)
Any advice from you moms that have gone back to work after having kids??
(I am nervously biting my nails even writing this!!)
This was my first time picking out a tree that was still living! Growing up, we always bought our tree from a Christmas tree stand set up in a parking lot. This was much better! :)
My boys :)
Lily found the tree she wanted! Just her size.
Kate actually allowed daddy to hold her for a good 10 minutes! I think that was the best part of his day :)
There it is! Our tree!
Jonah was pretty excited to decorate.
