The end of a chapter …..

So. Tomorrow I am returning to work. I will no longer have the title of a Stay at Home Mum. Yes, I will still be able to do the morning drop off and pick my kiddies up from school but I will no longer be a Stay at Home Mum. And I can’t quite believe it.  From I was young, that’s all I’ve ever wanted to be – a mummy, followed closely by a teacher, but first and foremost I wanted to be a mum.  And a stay at home one at that. I do feel so emotional that little chapter is over now. The return to work has come a little sooner than I had imagined or hoped. But I know that this is right.

It’s the beginning of a new chapter for us ….. I’m excited, don’t get me wrong, it’s my dream job.  When we moved here 5 and a half years ago I can remember telling Ben – “I’d love to work in that pre school one day” –  and here I am, I start there tomorrow. The job is just perfect …. a gift from above. In a way I feel a little like I’m getting to have my cake AND eat it – I’ll be able to do the job that I love and also get to be home when my children are home.

But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t emotional. For so many reasons I am Mrs Teary Bake tonight. So I will go …. eat some Sensations, drink some diet coke and blub some more. This post is a bit (completely!) random and perhaps for my readers a little pointless. But I wanted to document this moment. I started this blog back in the days when I was home with 3 tinies under 3 years old,  when I had no car and all we did was play, eat and change nappies all day, every day.  Those days are over and news ones are beginning … and whilst I am all about embracing today and being excited about the adventure, tonight I’m being overly sentimental and nostalgic and that’s allowed 😉

  1. Aw, Karen. Sending big hugs. How precious you’ll still be able to be at home when your kids are. You can do this in your Heavenly Father’s strength. Keep finding your brave in Him 😘


  2. I can understand the bittersweet feeling, I can’t imagine going back to work and not being a SAHM anymore, even though I really want to. Congrats on the awesome job! Definitely sounds like a dream job 🙂

  3. Good luck in the new chapter of your life, it sounds like you have the best of both worlds having the job you always wanted and still being there for your kids after school. I’m sure it’s bittersweet for you though xx


  4. Hello , I just found your blog through the light wave. Tonight will be my first light, not my first loss. I love your words and something you wrote gave me the courage to lite and post it. God Bless xo
