Hey all and a good afternoon.
First off, if you are looking for a fun game.. check out
Are you a Yankee or a Rebel. My co-worker told me about it. Guess I am 39% Dixie.. definetly a Yankee. No surprise since I have lived in MN my whole life.
Preschool Conferences went well. She said Jeffrey is a great kid. I finally got to ask the names of Jeffrey's two preschool girlfriends (he has 2 others as well) and hear about their relationships. Glad to hear he is doing good and with his Verbal Apraxia he is not sticking out like a sore thumb.
I told Nick last night about my fears in becoming a SAHM. Everyone reassures me that I will do good at it and like it... why don't I believe them? I will miss about 95% of my co-workers - 100% of the ones in my department - so that will be hard. I guess I am also worried about losing my identity.. that I will just be Mom. And don't get me wrong, I love being a Mom.. but I also love being many other things.

Melissa: Fear not, you will lose your identity only if you allow that to happen...which I doubt you will! In all the SAHM I'm around, I can think of only one person who's lost her identity in favor of the demands of the kids. It really does take a more effort to lose your identity than to keep it.

And remember, no decision remains the final decision! Good luck..

I am lucky enough to work from home - I miss my coworkers but I love being able to home when my kids go to school and come home even more. I also like the fact that they can have more activities outside of school because I have the flexibility to be the taxi driver for them (haha).

You will do fine!

On another note: Do you know of any scrapbooking events or local crops? I haven't found a group of ladies to scrap with since I moved in December.

Melissa, you will be a GREAT sahm! You'll wonder how you ever had time to fit work into your busy schedule. :)

And as a side note, I'm only 15% Dixie!! According to that quiz, I'm the "Duke of Yankeedom"!!! I like that. :)

Don't worry. You will be awesome. I doubt you'll lose yourself in being a SAHM and whenever you need some help with that we'll be here to remind you you are great.
