I just wanted to pop in and say hello! I'm Emily, mum to Miles and Claire who are almost 5 and almost 1 respectively. I've just started a new job outside the home for the first time in years and I'm not sure how long I'll be there for - is it selfindulgent to miss my kids so much I cry? They both seem very happy with their respective day care situations...dh isn't working at the moment, so maybe the timing is right and we'll just have to deal with the cards we've been dealt for a bit...anyway - more info than necessary probably, but I'm confused and have strep throat, and pms and in laws are coming this weekend...wah!

happy holidays!

Em

for the warm welcome. I feel better and have my general positive outlook back.

Looking forward to getting to know each and every member on the boards! And learning a lot too, I've been reading some older posts - what a wonderfully knowlegable group we are.

Hi Glendora,

Isn't it lovely all this gray and wind and rain - such a nice break from sun and more sun and yet more sun!

Thank you all for the warm welcomes!

Claire is one today - happy birthday to my gorgeous darling girl!

And tomorrow I hand in my two weeks notice - I just can't do this full time work thing at the moment. Thankfully I'm starting a part time from home gig so that will be perfect I can have my babes around me again!

And it's sunny!
