New Beginnings

I'm going to rewrite my resume today and get it out there I swear. Since I only have well til the end of this week before I am jobless. I'm hoping to actually take next week off. Since Skyler was born I haven't had any time off. I think it might be nice to just spend some time with my son, and not have to wake up at the crack of dawn, wake sleeping/cranky baby and run off to work. I'm excited about spending more time with him. Of course once I find a new job though, I'll be back to working full time, and he won't be able to come with me. I'm not sure how I feel about that.

On the one hand I can't wait to start working in a daycare and teaching little kids all sorts of new and exciting things, and to finish my schooling and get my ECE II cert, but on the other hand is C going to be as attentive to Skyler as I would be? I'm not so sure. I mean I love him and he's a great daddy, but I'm not sure he's going to spend as much time trying to teach him things as I do. Not that my kid has to be super smart.. I don't know. I'm just feeling confused I guess. Could also be that I went to sleep at 3 last night and woke up at 7 this morning.

I stayed up so late because I started a new project. I dug out a bunch of pink and red acrylic yarn last night and started crocheting a funky hat for N. I'm hoping it will fit her by her birthday in November which is when I imagine Toronto actually gets cool weather. Haha here it's winter by October. I wanted to give her something before she leaves to remember me by. I hope she likes it. I actually made it too big to start with and had to rip out 4 or 5 rows. It was kind of funny though, Chuck looked at it and laughed. It was too big to fit even his head. So chances were a 3 year old would drown in it. Haha. Hopefully I can finish it today and maybe add a picture. It's kind of cute, kind of funny looking. Haha, but she's 3 so I think she'll like it.

Good luck in finding a job quickly. I understand how you feel about not being to take Sky with you. It's heart breaking. I know that even by having C take care of him, it's just not the same as you doing it. It's hard to let go.

My goodness, you do need a break to spend some quality time with Sky.

Oooh, you should post a picture of the hat you made for N.

I'm sad for you that you have to leave N. That would be very, very difficult. I think she'll love her hat though! Little girls at that age LOVE those types of things. Especially something soft and made with love.

It's very hard to leave Lily home with Derick, for me. Like C, he loves her and is a great Dad, but he doesn't do things with her like me. I said something to him yesterday because he didn't want to play with her and I'm like, "What do you do all week? Just watch TV?" When he plays with her, he sits her down on the floor with her toys and when I play with her I'm all in her face LOL making silly faces and noises and trying to get her to do something. Yesterday she was kind of wobbly walking with me holding her hands and I said, "Get excited for her to walk to you!" So I made him (yeah, I had to make him do it) jump up and down and clap his hands and yell and when he did, her face lit up and she was practically pulling me towards him. They just don't get it, lol, but where would we be without them?

Anyway, I know the whole situation will be difficult for you. Good luck on the job search, and deffinately take some time off. You and Sky both deserve it ; )

I think a week off will be great - not only because you haven't had a break, but also as a way to recover from N's move.

have you tried looking on craiglist? With the school year approaching, there are a lot of nanny jobs listed.
