10 years ago

10 years ago, Emma was six months old and I had to return to work.  I was soo upset because I would have loved to be able to stay at home with her, and be a stay at home mum.  I remember the first time we took her to Daycare, I dropped her off, she cried her eyes out and I came home and cried my eyes out.  I called the Daycare but she was doing just fine, my heart was sooo sore and I felt soo bad, but we trying to save to buy our first house so I had to go back to work.

This fortnight's challenge over at Challenge me Happy is "10 years ago", so this layout is pretty special because I want Emma to know that I really didn't want to go back to work, but had to.  I was very lucky to be able to work school hours, which still gave me time with the girls in the afternoon, especially for Abigail who didn't have to go to Aftercare anymore either, so in the long run it was all good.

I still cannot believe Emma is 10 this year, and Abigail will be 17 (WOW) I feel sooo old now, I have to say I am extremely fortunate to have such wonderful girls whom I love dearly.

Here is a little close up of the journalling
