I had an amazing morning working at my daughter's preschool as a substitute teacher. You see, I do work in her class about once a month, but as a working parent. Today I had more interaction with the kids and we even got to play together during free time. The kids were really into playing "Doctor" and loved taking my blood pressure and giving me shots. Although some were not so gentle with me. LOL. I love be able to see my daughter play with her friends and teachers (who she adores)! She was so proud to show Mommy off as the other teacher.
After school we made a stop at Dunkin Donuts (of course I needed a coffee after my busy morning playing) and I treated the girls to a donut. Then we made our way to Geissler's to pick up a few things for dinner. We went home and enjoyed a nice lunch together. Then came nap time-my favorite time of day! Don't get me wrong, I do love to spend time with my girls, but I need my alone time too! This is the time I spend reconnecting with friends online, while making other new connections too. I get the chance to follow up with phone calls to people interesting in working from home. It is great to able to connect with strangers who have many similar goals to me. It is very gratifying to know I can help another person achieve their dreams.
After nap time, the girls and I played LRC together. (This is a very cool dice game they love to play). Then we all made dinner and waited for Daddy to come home. We all enjoyed a very chatty dinner together (that's what you get when you have two girls). When we are done cleaning up from dinner, I got ready to go to my first official Zumba class. I met up with my friends and we were busy shaking our butts for an hour. I came home took a quick shower and put my girls to bed.
Now I get to relax and return a few more emails before I call it a night. All in a day's work!!! Life is good being a Work at Home Mom!!!
