Back to work in 24 days :-(

Postby darateacher » Fri Jul 31, 2009 07:38 pm

I'll be going back to work very soon. Although I'll be going part time, I'm REALLY going to miss my boys!

After all I've been through, this should be relatively simple. Any suggestions? I really don't want to call my mom or the day care center constantly.

It's ok to call constantly at first. They'll understand...and you'll get more comfortable as the days wear on. Part time, huh? That's really great! Did you get your tenure last year?

It'll be pretty hard at first....hang in there!

Thanks, Kara. :-) Yes, I got my tenure, and now I can go part time without worry...sort of. Gotta love this economy, right?

call as many times as you want that is what you pay them for... Of course your mom is another story but mine understood... My mom is watching my boys this week and so far it is 7:21am and my oldest has called me once..... It sure does change when they get older.

Hey dara! Do you have a pic of your boys? I haven't been around much and would love to see them! Last time I was here they were just born I think.

Dara - Congratulations on making another milestone with the boys. I'm still over the moon for you! More milestone are to come for you, hubby, and the boys. I hope that work goes well - I know there is a chance that you'll enjoy the 1/2 time away - I know that I did - I enjoyed being a 'grown up' again!
