Reality Check

After spending close to 1/3 of his life in college, Mike graduates in about 2 weeks. TWO WEEKS, do you know what that means? After 2 weeks, we are an unemployed family of four. I'm sort of starting to freak out just a tad, something I usually don't do. I know everything will be ok somehow, but we will not have any income coming in in TWO WEEKS!!! We knew this day was coming, but I feel like it really just snuck up on me- I know that's my own fault, but still. So we are both applying wherever we can, but honestly I don't want to go back to work right now- I don't want to leave Eli, I don't want to wake up early, get dressed, pack a lunch and leave my boys for the whole day. It's just not what I want to do right now. But I am realistic, so I am also applying for jobs, mostly part-time.
So for now we just wait and see what happens, but in the mean time, if anyone hears of an awesome job that pays decent and would let me bring my kids- let me know- OK. Thanks!

This post brought tears to my eyes. I know millions of moms do it every day and some don't have a choice including me when you were little but I wish you could continue to stay home with the babies ! Mom
