I forgot how great it feels to get out of the house.
As nervous as I was to go back to work and adjust to a new schedule, new people, my new role in the family, I just forgot how great it is to get out and be able to be me.
To be good at something that's just mine again.
To let the creative juices flow.
I haven't felt that as a hairstylist for quite awhile. I am back to envisioning hairstyles that will look good on people. I am creating colors that enhance peoples personalities and natural beauty. It has been fun.
I really didn't think it would be either.
I envisioned myself as a stay-at-home mom forever. I still consider myself that too. Is that wrong. I'm not a working mom, because I am at home with the kids most days, but I'm not a stay-at-home mom anymore either.
Maybe I'm a:
stay at home during the day and miss bedtime every night mom?
None of those sound very good to me, but our situation is working for the moment. I am liking my job and hoping to get crazy busy so that Brian can become the stay-at-home dad (if he wants to). He has been loving having so much time with the kids too.
So, the roles are working at the moment. We will have to wait and see what changes come within the next couple of years but right now its a great change.
