8 years?!....where has the time gone.






So yesterday was the little one's birthday...HAPPY BIRTHDAY to you son!!! It's just so hard to believe I've been the mother of this awesome little boy for 8 whole years! Time is moving along way to fast for me and I feel like I'm trying to keep up and not let it pass me by.

We had a nice simple day, no party this year. He said several times "this was the best birthday ever!" That just proves that kids often love simplicity and don't need all of the grand gestures we throw at them.

We continued today with more family time, which was also great.

Have I learned anything as I look back over the last 7 years? Yes! I've learned patience (most of the time), I've learned that children watch more than they listen, I've learned that my heart holds more love than I ever thought imaginable, and I've learned to have fun all over again.

Thanks son for being the funniest, most handsome, smartest kid ever....Love you!!

One week down.....

Well, I did it. I finished my first week of work and the little did his first week of before/after care. He actually loved it; and to think I was worried. They play games and a couple of kids from his class are there in the morning, so he likes it and that makes me happy!

My job is customer service in a call center and I'm pretty sure I won't be there long. I HATE call centers and shift work and have done my best to avoid even applying for those jobs since I've been off. I accepted this one because I was told I'd more than likely be able to work days and of course that's not the case. I was assigned a shift that ends at midnight!!! Ummm yea, don't think that's going to work.

Randomness from a mom

The year is going great so far! The little one's first week back to school went off without a hitch :)

Tomorrow is a new day for me; I'm back to work full time after a long time off. It's also the start of classes for the Spring term, so my plate will be full. Let's see if I can handle it all...

The little one will also experience something new tomorrow: his first time being in before/after care since starting school over 2 years ago. I'm a bit apprehensive about this but I'm trying to be strong so I can make him feel good about it. I'm sure he'll be fine but I still don't like it...hmpf!

I'm having of of those "tired of having to do everything" moments. I'm not sure if all unmarried parents experience this but I do every now and then. It would just be nice to have someone to say "let me take care of this for you."

Anywhoo...off to get ready for tomorrow.

Happy New Year!!!!



Here's to an awesome 2011! Hoping this year will bring exciting opportunities to myself and others. I don't make resolutions but if I did this is what they would be: Get healthier, kick my entrepreneur spirit into HIGH gear, become more active, try something new (I think I'm already doing that).
