I did have a mini-panic attack right after I informally accepted over the phone, however. Gavin is very energetic at night and as soon as I hung up with the HR coordinator he just walked up and grabbed my hands and said "want to dance with Mommy" and started spinning and jumping. I lost it and just started crying. I get frustrated a lot during the week but when I think about not being with the boys during the day it breaks my heart! I've always thought I was the type to not stay at home, and I think that working is the right choice for me, but it is so hard. I guess if you are a working mom you know...and if you're a stay at home mom, you probably know, too. I guess the grass is always greener on the other side.
So, unless my future manager is upset that I need to take four days off right off the bat for Christmas in Arizona, I start as a financial proofreader with Plante & Moran on December 14th. If you have any daycare tips, let me know. Our last choice is to go with the daycare we used before...only because Gavin got sick all the time. But I'm nervous to have someone come to the house because if that person calls in sick then what do you do? I need to do some research on what people are paid these days. Well, time for a celebratory beer and some MSU basketball!!
