LG has been in school for 4 days now. She cried on the first day which was really weird for me because she never cried once at preschool drop off. I was actually shocked. I realize now that we had made SUCH A BIG DEAL about kindergarten that she was overwhelmed. She stopped within 2 minutes, she was fine and LOVED every minuteof the first day.
Yesterday was the first full day of school. Her kindergarten runs from 8:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m. She cried again when I dropped her off yesterday. I actually left her at school crying. Her teacher assured me she would probably stop when I was out of site. I actually wasn’t worried. I didn’t even feel bad for leaving her crying. I knew she would be fine and we had made such a big deal about the LONG day that she was overwhelmed. I learned a few things the past few days about my child!
LG is off having a great time every day and I am BORED OUTTA MY MIND!!!! I have been a stay at home mom now for 5 years. I have filled my days with playdates, freelance work and LG. NOw that there are no more playdates, etc. I have nothing to do. I can only do laundry and clean so much, right.
Truth be told, I am looking for a job. I have been looking for the past 8 months. I probably haven’t been looking as hard as I could because I knew that I had some time before LG started school and my goal has always been to get her to the start of kindergarten. Now that she is settled it is time for me to work. I am really excited about this! I am really not cut out to be at home all the time. If I had more children then maybe I would be content to be home but I don’t think so. Even if I have another child, I know for me that I will need to work.
For now while LG is at school, I have started running again. I am going through things and getting rid of stuff we have been holding onto for years that we don’t need. I am “cleaning house.” It is about to me “me” time and I am so ready for it. Bring on the jobs!!!!
