I feel like I can breathe...


Well, I feel like I can breath a little easier.


I know recently I have talked about getting a job, and yes, I am still heartbroken about this. But after a long talk with hubs, I know this is where God wants me to be. We need the money, I think I need the freedom a little, and I think it will be good for B. I hope anyway. I pray this is the right decision!! I know my heart feels this is the way to go.

After speaking with my mom this weekend, she told me to go over to the babysitters (she is right across the street)with B and introduce them, all while checking the place out and feeling the vibe.


I introduced them and he was just happy as a lark. He gooed and smiled at her. Then, he was getting a little fussy and she took him out of my arms and rocked him to sleep. After this meeting, I feel a little better about leaving my man.


I know when the day comes I am going to cry, but hopefully after that hurtled is reached, all will be well. Money will be coming in and little B will enjoy his freedom. At this stage, I feel like hubs and I are doing the right thing.

So glad that you are happy with her. Just remember to always follow your gut, its that mommy instinct that you get the moment they are born. Everything will work out and be fine. XOXO

That's great that he will be right across the street. As long as you have a good feeling about who's watching B, I think that will make you feel better about it all. Where will you be working? With Tommy going back to school, I really should go back to work, too. Blah! I'm sure he would like a break from paying all the bills. I'm kinda set up to work from home...just need lots of business! Anyhow, thanks for the info on the washer...yes I'm trying to talk Tommy into a front load...sage green! We.will.see. Whatever we do we must act FAST...how long can one go without a washing machine!

i can only imagine how difficult it will be to go back to work. but at least you have the comfort of knowing the babysitters and their close proximity to your home, that is definitely a plus.

I'm so sad you have to get a job but you know, honestly, it's nice to have some adult time/things! You're baby sounds like he will be fine!

It is much easier to go back to work if you love who your kids will be with. I worked in Oklahoma just part-time, but it was enough for me to keep my sanity. I'm missing work now, and might go back once miss Emma is weaned. Let us know what you end up doing!!
