This is what I’ve been doing for the last six months… raising a healthy, happy baby boy. At first it was difficult– sore and riddled with hormones, I moved from Buffalo to Birmingham with a one-week old. And I’d never thought of myself as a stay-at-home-mom, but that’s what I needed to be for awhile. Once I got used to it, I’ve enjoyed it, but I’m ready to get back to work. I still have career goals and professional interests and the desire to give my little boy a financially secure life. I miss teaching. I miss talking library. And I think my son is at a point where he would benefit from the social learning environment of day care.
I’ve been applying for local library- and teaching-related jobs for three months, and I’ve started getting interviews. I’m currently in interviews with three schools– two colleges and a high school.
