I’m a bag of mixed emotions right now.
Last thursday I submitted a resume and letter of interest to an 8th grade Math/Science teaching position I found posted on craigslist. Two hours later I got a call and and interview appointment for the next day. The next day, I interview and get (informally) offered the position. Yesterday I went in to sign all the paperwork! I’m so excited to be working again and with a great charter school. I am eager to meet my students and colleagues. Plus, I’m getting a few thousand more than my previous position…bonus!!
With all this excitement though, I feel guilty and sad that my almost 2 year old boys will have to be placed in day care. I know they will eventually love it and the interaction with other children will make thier social skills and language developement thrive, but I’m still sad. I keep wondering…what if they’re thirsty and no one gives them water, what if they want a cracker and its not snack time, what if someone doesn’t wanna share, what if…. (oh great, now I’m crying)…. I just feel so guilty that I really don’t want to be a full-time at home mom anymore.
Ughhh…. I’m just worried about the first few weeks of our seperation. How long will it take for them to be ok? How about for me?
