Tomorrow is the day.... The day I quit my job as a Full-time stay at home Mom to a Full-time Nursing Student. I have alot of emotions about it.. I am excited about starting this journey to finish my degree/career. I am sad about leaving my baby boy and the the days we shared together (all day). I am nervous about getting back into the swing of things.
I know that Brody is going to be just fine. My mom is going to be watching him and he absolutely adores her just as she does him. She is the only person other than me who can soothe him, calm him, and get him to sleep. He will also get to see his Papaw throughout the day as well as he comes in and out from his office. He is going to have so much fun at Mammaws house all day. I know that I am going to miss him terribly but I have to do this for me, Brody, and my family. I am a little nervous as he is still nursing ( mostly at morning and night) and I have been trying to wean him for this day ( didn't work well) so I hope that he handles it okay. I hope he has alot of fun and doesn't miss me too much.
I was so extremely lucky to be able to stay at home with him for a FULL YEAR, I will not complain and this was my choice to go back to school. I want to finish my nursing degree while I am young and this felt like the right time for me. I will be going M-Thur from 8-4. I also am very blessed and lucky that my mom has retired and will be watching Brody and we live right next door so it will be easy in the mornings for me.
Say a special little prayer for me as I change "jobs" tomorrow and pray that I make it through the day okay and that Brody does too. I hate knowing that he may cry for me and miss me. I want him to know I will always be there and that I am not gone forever. I know it may take a few days to get into the routine but I know he will be fine. This is hard for me as I don't leave him much unless it is to go to get groceries, to a movie every once in awhile, or to clean my house for 30 minutes and I have still yet to even let him stay all night with my parents right next door.. He's my baby and I want to be right where he is.....
He is going to love it being with my mom... I just know he will. I'm saying a special little prayer that everything goes good and that he has fun and does just fine on his first day without his Momma. Oh and a special prayer for myself that I can make it through the day without crying ( yea right.)
