Mome reads Mommy, My daughter's way to spell it when she was younger... It stuck. My son calls me Mome... just like it looks. I now sign all my notes to them "Love, Mome". It's our inside secret and makes them smile. I always want them to smile.

Going back to work when the kids go to school

I swear I get more e-mails for online businesses and schools. I've thought several times about going back to school to get my college degree. Then I look at the cost and just can't believe how expensive it is. I know college credits have gone up in the 20 something years since I left but sheesh. Why so expensive for online classes?

I wonder sometimes if it would be worth it to take a specialized course for something like paralegal courses, nursing or medical assistant training school. At least all the classes would be towards the specified degree and I would be wasting money on pre-reqs.

What to do, what to do. Puddin Pop could go to all day pre-k next year, but that just seem like too much for a 4 year old. If not next year, she will definitely be a full tim student the following year and then what will I do. My previous positions are not even an option as I refuse to spend all those hours away from the kids. I need to look into available positions at the school. That would be the perfect solution. We would be off on the same days and Summer's would be free too.

If you were/are a SAHM do/did you go back to work when the kids go to school? What are your plans?


  1. I worked at the school as a paraprofessional when my kids were younger.
    My oldest is now 19 and my youngest is a Freshman in High School. Due to health issues, I am kind of forced to find my own thing- which has been a blessing in disguise. I have always loved to write and speak- therefore- a lot of freelance writing and speaking engagements. Having the same schedule as my kids was very NICE- summers with them at the pool- trips to amusement parks with other moms/kids- I don't regret those years. do what is in your heart. I will say this- Don't take anything for granted, as you never know when life may change. Mine did- I'm so glad we did the things that we did as a family while I was physically able to. Do what is best for your family!
