When my oldest daughter was born my life changed – drastically. No more shut eye, no more late nights, no more crazy sex where-ever, whenever, however, no more wild parties – you get it – I was entering a new chapter in my life.
I continued to work as the head Coach of a gymnastics club and would often bring Marie in with me when she was just a wee thing. She was great, she just sat there in a custom made gymnastics leotard and watch what was going on. I became pregnant again for the second time and continued to work but about half way through my pregnancy for the first time ever in my life I didn’t want to be in the gym. I wanted to be home with my two babies. So I gave my notice and left.
Fast forward 14 years, eight children, I still miss the gym. I miss coaching, I miss doing choreography, Put simply, I miss everything about a gym. Kinda hard not to when entire childhood and half of your adult life was spent in one I guess.
A few months ago though I had the best offer. I was asked to help prepare a group routine for the Acrobatic Gymnastics Team that my oldest daughter belongs to. There was only a month and a half to get over 20 gymnasts ready for a demo / competition which took place yesterday. I was psyched!
I had the best time! Working my creative juices, working with a great club, working with some amazing children (other than my own) and a great team of coaches!
You can check out the routine here:
So the question is will I go back to work? Probably not right now but I think as soon as it is manageable with all these kiddies I just might look into it!
What about you? Do you work outside of the home and if so how do you manage to juggle it all? Are you a stay at home mom who would like to go back to work?
Until next time,
