Survived the first week.

If you have been frequenting my blog, you must have read that I started a new job last week. I was actually pretty excited with this job. It's a completely different ball game than what I have done in the past but this is what I went to school for in college, so I have always wanted to practice this ever since I graduated, which was like ages ago, lol! So when the opportunity to work in a field that I have always desired to be a part of, I took a leap of faith, with hubby's blessings of course. We knew it was going to be a bit tough during the first few months or so because we would all be adjusting to the new set-up. I mean I have stayed at home with my son for over 2 years, I had been jobless for almost 4 years so it will really be a huge adjustment on our part. The first day was brutal for me and Caleb. I mean it felt like my heart was literally ripped off when I saw how upset he was when it was time for me to leave. The following days were getting better and better although he still gets unhappy at times but he's thriving and he's starting to adjust to his new world with other kids. We actually thought this may be beneficial for him in the long run as far as developing his social skills and interaction with other people. It was just hard to think of being away from him but I kept telling myself to stick to this for at least a month and see how he acts by then. My most favorite part of the day though is when I get to pick him up after work and he would run to me and hug me and say "Mama"! (with a facial  expression that conveys he misses me too) As far as my job goes, oh I couldn't be any happier. I have the best supervisor and superiors. I feel very welcome. I love the working environment and most of all I love the nature of the job. Like I've said, this is something that I have always wanted to do for the longest time. And I just can't believe that I am doing it now and in a very stable company at that. I just felt so blessed. So despite my woes about Caleb and how much I'm missing him, I am still grateful that I have this job. So yeah, we survived the first week indeed. Yay! to that...

Congratulations on your job. I understand how you feel I felt that way when I worked when my son was little. It is difficult but you can do it and he will eventually love being with other friends.
