A New Beginning – DAY 1

Tomorrow marks the first time in 23 years that I won’t be participating in the annual first day of school. Most of these first days I’ve been a student and in the past few years, a teacher. Now I’ve taken on a totally new role, parent! Being a mom is the reason I’m missing 2011’s first day of school. I’m very blessed to be in a position to take maternity leave for the entire 2011-2012 school year and spend it with my son, Bug. I’m a little torn up about about it because I love my job and coworkers and will be missing them – but I’m looking forward to being able to concentrate on just one thing, taking care of my baby.

I’m a first time mommy, so you can expect me to write about all the mistakes I know I’ll be making. Hopefully we can find the humor in them! You can also expect cute pictures of Bug, announcements about the cool new things he learns to do, and interesting links, articles, and other mommy- or parenting-related stuff too. I’m also a first time WordPress user, so please be patient as I learn. 🙂

My plan is to update this blog at least once a week in the next 365 days, so please check back, follow me, or even better, add my blog to your RSS feed!
