Going (Gone) Back to School for This Mom
I recently finished a first graduate level course since motherhood. Not as easy as it was before kids. I was so nervous. So much has changed in 11 years, but when I got back to campus I felt good. I have 6 more classes to complete my degree and I will take 2 classes a semester for the next 3. By June I should be finished.
To be honest, it is the first real thing I have done for myself since motherhood. It seemed weird at first to spend the time and money on me. But honestly, I am enjoying it - even the late night procrastination! I think it is good for the kids to see me working towards a goal too. I know the kids are watching. They are asking questions and all wanted to see my report card!
I got an A! GPA is 3.72 so far. This mom is working her rear off!
