Where I Get All Sentimental and Snarky About The First Day of School

September 3, 2014 by Katia

So, how is September 3rd treating ya?

It’s three days post summer vacation and I’m in recovery.

I don’t have anything interesting to say about the first day of school, but I did last year, so if you weren’t following me one year ago, this one —–>

This one.

Sentimental

will make you go AWW and AAH!

And that one ————->

5 differences between the first day of kindergarten and junior high

Snarky

will make you go HA!

Oh wait, I do have something interesting to tell you before you leave. Remember how I went to that big blogging conference last month? Well, Arianna Huffington was one of the keynote speakers. She mentioned her email address during her session, one thing led to another and guess who’s writing for Huffington Post now?

Clue: click the links above to find out.

Moral of the story: step outside of your comfort zone. It brings growth.

As you were.

      I know I’ve been doing that on and off (I was really scared of the huge exposure and getting the inevitable nasty comments that come with that) and finally decided I wanted to try again. Just keep trying, it will happen!

  3. Congratulations on Huffington Post!!

Tired. Going from 10 months of staying at home with the kids to full time work is disorienting.  I have to redefine what my involvement in their lives looks like. I have to go dig for my creativity, it's not readily available. I have to make room for friendships that were already pushed to the outskirts of my mommy life. What was previously inaccessible, existing in the "so near yet so far" category - books, blazers and heels - became a staple in this old new reality in a matter of days. Tired and disoriented but also content, supported and appreciative. #momsofinstagram #random #randomthoughts #changes #workingmom #tired #tgif
