Well, last night was a resounding success. It couldn’t have gone better!! I drove the kids to Hubby’s work, and as soon as he got out, kissed them goodbye and did a car switch. He headed off to McDonald’s with them for a Daddy/daughters date, and I went to my course.

I even managed to resist the desire to call him to make sure everything was okay when we had a break during class.

I didn’t really learn anything new, but it was a nice introduction, and cool to meet some other people who are passionate about helping people. I think I’m the youngest in the class. There were six other women, and one man – though there will be a second starting next week. It’s always great to see men training for roles like this, which seem to primarily draw females.

I gave one of the women a lift home as she’s carless at the moment. By the time I got in the door I was pretty exhausted, and I had the pleasure of coming home to a household of sleeping children. Did not expect that! I was so pleased for Hubby that it went well, and so proud of the girls for being so great for him. Having a fantastic first run at this new phase of our lives was perfect.

I’m looking forward to next week – and it makes me feel a lot more confident about going out in the future. I reckon this weekend I really will hit a cafe for a couple hours with my laptop. Yippeee!!!

    Yay, you!

    When our kids were younger, it was so hard for me to just leave them with their dad, but really, he’s awesome. We moms can be kind of control freaks, you know? Learning to trust the co-parenting unit is a beautiful thing. πŸ™‚

    When people would ask Bryce if he was babysitting, he would always say, “no, I’m parenting.” πŸ™‚

  2. That is an awesome tribute to all the hard work you’ve done with the girls these last few years and the new phase of life you and your whole family are entering. Live your dreams and be that example. πŸ™‚
