Back to Work

The homemaker has the ultimate career. 
All other careers exist for one purpose only - and that is to support the ultimate career. 
C.S. Lewis

Tomorrow is my first day back to work outside my home since Alivia was born. I am sad, a little sick to my stomach, & a few other emotions, all of which will magnify when I take that first step out of my house.

I am blessed & so thankful despite my feelings about not being at home full-time.
- I just work a few days a week
- Alivia gets to stay home w/ Dad while I'm away (our boys are in school)
- Home is only a couple blocks from work, so I can still see & nurse my sweet girl during the day (and see my wonderful husband too)

It's still my desire to be a full-time stay at home mom & wife, but in the meantime, I'm grateful.


  1. Good way to look at it! Have a good day tomorrow.

  2. You have such a positive attitude! Do you enjoy your part-time work?

  3. Hope your first day back was great! Kids are more flexible than we give them credit for...

  4. Things went pretty well today. I sure missed my family but overall it was a good day. Thanks everyone :)
