In the next month a lot will be changing for the Godbott Family!
Mama Godbott will be going back to work!
As much as I have tried to make the blog work full-time it isn’t working right now…and I am totally okay with that! I have put my best foot forward, and I still plan to continue blogging so I am not upset, I just feel that right now may not be the time to become a full-time blogger. I am actually ready for something new, I am going to miss my couple of hours in the afternoon with my babies but they will be with their grandmother so I am comfortable with leaving them in the afternoons. Our mornings will stay the same but the afternoons will change!
I have honestly been looking for a job for a while, but I needed something that fit perfectly with our schedule as well as the best fit for family and I. And last month I was blessed to receive an offer from a Higher Education Institution in Cleveland. I haven’t worked since 2013, so I am nervous about getting back out there but I’m excited at the same time! I will have a chance to work with the students as they enroll as well as financial aid, pretty similar to what I was doing at my previous job!
When I think of leaving my children…even for a couple of hours I get a little teary eyed because I have been a SAHM since 2013. Life has changed so much since 2013 and I am well into this routine we currently have, however, I know that change is good and this is good for our family! I have some personal goals that this will help me to achieve as well as some family goals that my husband and I can now tackle with more consistent income coming in.
I have stated many times on my blog that I never had plans of becoming a SAHM. However, after Emma was born and was born with special needs I never wanted to leave her side! I wanted to be the one taking care of her after her surgeries and going to doctors appointments. Then a couple of years later we had the twins…and I knew when I found out I was pregnant with twins I wasn’t going back to work ANYTIME soon. But with the unexpected challenges that, that entire situation brought on I was more so not emotionally ready to separate from my kids. The thought of leaving them made me cry…literally! However, now we are in a good place and although I still have rough days I have learned how to continue to push through them and deal with my feelings at the same time……we have been through some ups and downs but I feel like we are in a good position for me to go back to work.
