  1. Congrats on the new opportunity! I spent the first 2 1/2 years of my oldest son’s life (he’s now 6) with my husband and I alternating shifts (He worked first, I worked 2nd) to avoid daycare, then I decided to jump back in the workforce. I spent four years in the medical administration field and am now back at home with my sons (my youngest is 20 months) and I watch my newborn niece full-time. It sure is an adjustment. I totally feel ya about wanting to get out and away from the kids. There’s certainly no shame in that. Best wishes for a great downtown event. We live in Mechanicsburg so maybe we’ll have to take a drive out to York for an event sometime! I blog a lot about the local area. My blog is at mendingthepiggybank.com.

      Hi Brianna — Thanks for reading and for reaching out! I respect stay-at-home moms so much; it’s seriously the toughest thing I’ve ever done, haha. We have a lot of great stuff going on in York – you should check us out 🙂 I also help to plan a really fun food truck event called foodstruck: http://www.foodstruckyork.com. Our next event is August 31.

      Can’t wait to check out your blog! Thanks again!

  2. Congrats! It sounds perfect for you. As a work-at-home homeschooling parent, I assure you there should be no feelings of guilt in wanting to get away for your sanity’s sake. Everyone thrives better when there is some separation from each that is regularly carved out of life’s otherwise hectic pace. Happy mama equals happy offspring, or at least we can deal with unhappy offspring with more patience!

    Hope to see you sometime soon. Cheers!

      Thanks, Amber! Oh wow – the work-at-home plus homeschooling. Working at home is kind of stressful for me because Holden needs so much attention and I inevitably feel guilty no matter what I’m doing, haha. I can’t even imagine with the schooling thrown in. Props to you, seriously. Hope to see you soon!
