The Last Day of School

So that's it. I'm home. I guess I'm a Stay at Home Mom now? It's for an undetermined amount of time...so does that count? I'll be taking my Maternity Leave and then Family Medical Leave and then Personal Leave of Absence. I may end up back at work by the Holidays or I may stay out the whole year. Who knows, maybe we'll even be able to pull off longer? Only time will tell.

Today is Joaquin's last day of Preschool too. It's all rather bittersweet. I'm excited for this next chapter and also a bit anxious. I hope I can do it. I hope I can be that amazing Stay at Home Mom that I've been wanting to be these past couple of years. Or even just something close will be fine, I just want to enjoy this time as much as possible.

I'll be taking it easy the rest of today, maybe talk Dan into seeing a movie...then tomorrow starts my new "job"!

Oh, PLEASE don't try to be amazing. Just get through the day at first. Then try to throw in bits of amazing as you go. But if you try to be amazing, you'll just be disappointed when he makes you crazy one day and you tell him you're going to kick him (but then don't, of course). Seriously, you'll be awesome as long as you're not trying to be.

You can definitely do it! I think you'll be great with two!

So, I'll be amazing if I don't try to be? Is that your secret, Elaine? Because I have to admit, you're one of my Mama role models!
