Any followers out there who were SAHM and now working FT?

I may be going back to Corporate America after almost 6 years (fingers crossed).  Any pointers to get through it all?  Finding a nanny? Adjusting to being gone? Helping the kids adjust?  Adjusting emotionally?

Alarm clock and night light – Ok to wake!

What a great invention!  I could have used this about a year ago.  Thankfully now my kids get up and head downstairs to play until they get thirsty for milk.

Breakfast with Santa – December 17 at Sandburg H.S.

Lunch with Santa last week with the Frankfort Park District wasn’t enough to fill your youngsters, was it. That’s fine, because they’ll surely get their fill at Sandburg High School when they eat breakfast with Santa! Jolly old Saint Nicholas knows just how important the first meal of the day is, and he’s more than willing to take some time out of his busy holiday schedule to spread some cheer and to pass the pancakes! See Page 4 for more information.
Where: Sandburg High School, 13300 S. LaGrange Road, Orland Park.
When: 9 a.m.-Noon, Saturday, Dec. 17.
