I can't believe that the time has come already.
Next Monday, in 5 days, I will be working outside of the home.For the first time in 7.5 years, I will not be home all day with my kids.
For the first time in 7.5 years, I will have to leave the house on a regular basis and leave my kids in the hands of another person.
For the first time in 7.5 years, I will be Christine, not Mommy, for 8 hours a day.
I knew I wanted to work outside of the home again. I knew that it was time to go onto that second stage of my life, our family's life, but it doesn't make it any easier.
The kids will be fine.
I will be fine.
Our family will be fine.
We will go on and we will succeed.
I will just miss the all day interactions with my kids, friends and family.
