After 3 years of being a full-time stay-at-home mom i am excited and petrified to announce that the time to re-enter the workforce has arrived. I can’t quite describe how I’m feeling about it all. It’s something like a very calming nausea, if that makes any sense. I am looking forward to having something other than my home life to think about; having my days filled with mind-challenging tasks (not that figuring out dinner every night isn’t). this doesn’t mean, however, that i don’t feel a bit nostalgic about the dirty-diaper duty i’m leaving behind and the lazy lunches I had with my husband almost every day.
My juggling abilities will be put to the test. when I get hired, because I will, managing a tight schedule will be the hardest thing. Figuring out what to do with my baby boy when he’s off from school and mami and Papi are working is what I fear the most. After 3 years of having us both so close, will our son get used to spending entire days without us? Will his rebellious little self come shining through? We’ll see. I’ll make sure to report back as soon as i find out. Until then, wish me luck.
