Tomorrow is National Fun at Work Day. This one really got me thinking (as I sit here pondering and not being able to go to bed). As moms, do we love our job? Maybe you are a single mom who is exhausted and needs help. Maybe you are a mom who is juggling multiple jobs and looking for an escape. Maybe your primary job is just to be a mom and at times are looking for a night out on your own. Whichever category you are in...we all have the same priority...our kids.
Being a teacher has many responsibilities as well as multiple other jobs. It is very much a rewarding career but at times can be very tiring. I do a lot of after school activities and most every day my hours begin at 7:30 and go until 5:30. When the four of us get in the car the last thing I want to do is talk. I want peace and quiet and just want to sit....I am with kids all day long....but of course the questions begin as soon as we get in the car. Once we get home, dinner is made, homework is done, and the kids are bathed, it is time for the kiddos to be in bed. Another day is gone.
If you have been reading my blog, the gone feeling tugs at my heart so very badly. I don't want another day gone. My kids have become very interested in knowing what time it is in California (or another part of the world) when it is 6:00pm our time. Today when that question was asked, I could not help but think to myself that we should all get in a plane and fly to California so we can go back three hours. We could get those hours back!! (I mean not really but what if?!) What would you do?
I want your ideas! How can we, as moms, make tomorrow our National Fun at Work Day? Maybe I will make a fun breakfast to start their day. Maybe we will go outside and practice their spelling words with chalk. Lets rally together and show our kids that they are our fun! Show them that the work that we do is for them but also show them that we want to do it. I promise you they will remember it. Let's make tomorrow THEIR National Fun at Work Day! Please leave me your ideas below and unite together in the one thing we have in common...our kids.
My repurpose for today: Remember my attitude is not only an example for my work place but also my kids.
I am an everyday mom who likes everyday things. I love taking everyday items and giving them a repurpose. Our number one seller is our candles!
