Today was my last day of work (teaching) until at least Sept. It is bittersweet..I'm glad to have the time to rest until my baby arrives, but it's a little bit sad too knowing that I won't have the same routine and see the same people.

At work, they had an ice cream cake and gave me a HUGE basket of food...snacky food items. Of course I do appreciate the cake and gift basket, but it was just a bit odd.

What have your experiences been??

My last day of work was a week ago with plans of being a stay @ home mommy. Like most of us who have worked/careered our whole lives (I'm 37yrs old), it's a little scary. I wonder if I'll be bored or unfufilled or unchallenged (experienced moms are laughing hysterically now). But I know from hearing from other mommies that the hardest and most fufilling job is being a mother.

Although it seems like a big life change now, I bet going back to work may be more difficult than you think!

On the other hand, I have a friend who is a die hard "I would go crazy if I had to stay home" mommy and loves her kids as much as anyone else.

Anyway... ENJOY this time: wash baby stuff in Dreft, get the room ready, spend time with your SO/hubby!

Good Luck!
