Sonny Boy had his first day of school a few weeks ago. Princess Blondie started a week after that. Today it was finally my turn. I went to work for the first time in over 7 years today.
The last job I had was as a waitress as at a mom and pop type restaurant that I had started when I was working my way through college. By the time it all came to an end I was pregnant with Sonny Boy. I quit a week before he was due. He ended up being ten days late. Perhaps I should have worked. Maybe I could have coaxed him out a little earlier.
So today I got to go back to school too, but this time I was the teacher. Last year I finished that college degree that I was using tip money to pay for so many years ago. I'm the lucky girl that has a pushy husband who tells her to do crazy things like finally finish college. I'm glad he did. He also keeps telling me that some day I'm going to get my masters degree and maybe more. I'm going to give that one a few years to sink in before I feel the need to work on it.
It was a wonderful first day. I have some fabulous little pipsqueaks in my class. As far as first days go it couldn't have gone better. Only one case of tears and that was because she got bubbles in her eye during a particularly rowdy bubble blowing session. All's well that ends well, I say.
To top it all off, I work with the most wonderful people. I loved Princess Blondie's teachers last year and now I get to work with them. How much better can it be?
