This has been a crazy summer for this Momma. We were blessed to have an amazing summer vacation to Washington State and Alaska. We had several family and friends come visit us too. We have been non-stop.
Last year I debated my roll as a Mommy. Was I good enough? Am I cut out to be a stay at home Mom? Should I go back to work? Should I go part time or full time? I am pretty sure EVERY mother debates this. I know most of my friends have admitted it to me. So this summer I took the plunge and took a job. Part time back in my field of education.
It didn’t work. Not because I wasn’t ready. It was because it was ‘right’. Sometimes you have to look at a situation from the inside to realize something isn’t correct. I felt amazing. Teaching kids even for a day (this is all it took). However, it wasn’t right for Peanut. She wasn’t happy and didn’t get what she needed. It actually took her a couple days to recover from her experience.
So here I am. Just a Mommy. Honestly, I am completely OK with being back in my full time Mommy role. I am more then OK! I love my girls more then words can express and I will ALWAYS do what is right for my kids.
Some day I will make it back to the classroom. Just not today. I will go back to teaching a full class in a ‘typical school’, for now I am going to completely enjoy my class of two.
Stay tuned for my latest and craziest idea I might have ever had… The next debate for me… To Homeschool or not to Homeschool for 2013-2014?!?!
