Back to Work Confessions

I confess....
Today was my first day back to working outside the home in almost 7 years and I am exhausted!

Beyond Exhausted.

I confess.....
I've never been able to sleep well the night before the first day of school. Even after years of being in the classroom I always got the first day of school excitement jitters that kept me up. Last night I didn't get much sleep.

I confess....
Being up and professionally dressed is a new experience for me as a mom. Normally I'm the mom in my pjs at the bus stop. I used to care and changed into jeans but that ship sailed this year.

Curled hair should end by the second week :)

I confess....
Getting myself and 3 kids out the door by 7:30 is no joke. It doesn't help that my husband leaves for work at 6:30 so he's not around to help.

Now I'm jealous of women who have husbands who cook and are home in the morning to help with the kids.

I confess....
I really missed being in the classroom! I didn't realize how much I missed it until today.

I confess....
I'm not ready for a teaching position since it's way more work than I'm willing to take on with 3 young children. I took a teacher assistant position which has no planning, meetings, trainings, or workdays. Basically I work when the kids are at school and I was able to get a job at my kids' school.

It's a great set up.

I confess....
Molly is a little sad that I'm not home with her and I am too. I wanted to take this job in the fall but it opened up now and I decided not to gamble that it wouldn't be there for me later.

I'm going to miss our alone time too. 

I confess....
I'm glad I got to start on a Thursday, it's a nice way to ease myself back into working full time.

I confess....
I don't think I'm going to have any problem going to bed tonight.

Waking up, well that might be another story.

What are you confessing this week?
