So with three kids, it seems that as soon as I think we are settling into a pattern the kids change, their sleep patterns change, their eating patterns change, their preferences change, their activities change. Life is always changing, and in most ways I welcome the change. I have always thought I was a flexible person generally. But some days I just want to soak it all up and have everything stay the same. But, with change comes the chance to reinvent ourselves... a chance to better ourselves. That is this month's Stream Team Theme... reinvent yourself. It is never too late.
It doesn't have to be a whole new makeover, maybe there is something little that you want to change. This weekend my husband and I were talking and he said that he thought it was time for me to go back to work next year. I was a teacher before I took up the full time mom gig. So I emailed a few of my teacher contacts in the district I worked in and the next day they emailed back with some jobs openings.... in one day I went from maybe I will think about going back to work to almost having a job... it was exciting and scary all at once. Going back to work will mean that I will be a working (outside the home) mom, something I have not done yet. I am excited to go back to teaching because I love it, but also anxious about the changes it will mean for the kids. So, I am reinventing myself as a working mom.
I will leave you with a video of my son, who used to not say a word... now belting out Let It Go.
Here are some great movies/tv show to stream on Netflix to motivate you to reinvent yourself!
