Friday! The fair, ballet and lots of running. at 5:56 PM

Well my first day of work was a success, i didn't keel over or bawl my eyes out because i missed my babe. It was actually kinda fun and pretty entertaining but it was still work and i have the blisters on my fingers to prove it. I am pretty excited i will be getting a discount on Halloween costumes but not excited that i am officially no longer a stay at home mama...le sigh. No more bike adventures, long days lounging in the park, endless picnics and tea parties. Gone are the days of pippi longstockings cleaning parties and mid day dance parties. I will miss those (almost 4) precious years of fun but alas, all good things must come to an end. ::queue sappy slow motion flashback now::

I think i did a pretty good job at stay at home momdom , 4 out of 5 stars at least ( i did let her eat ice cream for breakfast a few times) . I had a good run and now its time for something new. I am excited about bringing on the new writes for indie Ogden too, now that i am working i will need some extra help. I think you will all really like my new team and i hope you stay tuned in because Indie Ogden is getting super sized !
