Maggie is now 3 years old and reflux free (knock on wood). I still check in some to see how everybody is doing :) Hugs to all!
DRUMROLL PLEASE
I'M NOW A 4 YEAR OLD TEACHER! There's sure gonna be some screwed up 4yos around here, lol. I'm excited, scared, nervous, happy, sad, all that. I'm sad that I won't be with Mags all the time. This week dh has been on vac. Mags has insisted that I put her to bed because I've been in and out so much. She missed me. What's gonna happen when we're at the center from 830-530 every day? YIKES!

It'll work out, I know. Somehow. I'll miss y'all too. You know I won't be on here much then. So much change....at least we'll have $ and Mags will learn something.

I just luv y'all, lol. It does make me sad for real. Even though that silly yellow bear is so happy.

I start the last week of this month. We spend a few days planning and getting things ready. I've been reading my handbook and doing paperwork all morning!!! My first paycheck is gonna be spent on fees for sled checks, fingerprints, shirts, etc. Oh well...

We do get vacation and stuff though! I didn't realize we actually get benefits! This job is gonna be sooooo much better than the one I have. Now I just have to tell my boss. I dread it. We are friends and I don't want to say anything that will make her mad. I don't know how to tell her that I'm leaving. She will ask questions. That's just how she is. How will I answer her honestly without sounding like I just don't like our program? I guess I'll say something like: this program just fits our needs better. That sounds so lame and she's probably not gonna accept that without digging. ugh

Well...if it were me, I'd just fib and tell her that you are going to the new job for the benefits. No need to burn a bridge (or a friendship). Good luck!!!

Congrats Melissa! I would just tell her you are going for something a little more full time. That is the truth right? Is this a full time job you are taking? or am I just assuming that? But I wouldn't go into much detail in case this doesn't pan out then you have something to fall back on. (Not that I am saying this isn't going to work out KWIM?)

Thanks everybody! Nothing like encouragement!

It is full time. I will tell her something simple, I'm just afraid she's gonna press me for details. I don't want to crack under pressure.

GERD - currently on Prevacid suspension (liquid equivalent of 45 mg a day). Allergic to dairy, soy, eggs, wheat, all treenuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, peas, sesame, bananas, barley, coconut, dust, dust mite, dog, cat, latex. Seasonal allergies. Oral Allergy Syndrome (OAS).

PHOTO: We couldn't do a cake on Sebastian's birthday, but that didn't stop him from tossing around the contents of a big bowl of popcorn! He now tries to eat it when we play with popcorn, so no more of that game.... :(
That's so exciting! I wish I could send Sebastian to you...I trust him pretyt much around no one...but you'd be great! Congrats! Mags will do just fine...she's tough! Congrats again. I am very happy for you and hope you love it!!

You are too sweet Melissa! I'm really gonna have to be on my toes! I'm not awful, but I've never been at a center that expects so much either. I guess I just will have to keep telling myself to be the best I can be, lol.
Check with your
doctor first!
