Is it really 9 years later?

Ok, here's the deal........I can't believe that it's been NINE whole years! I've been a stay-at-home mom for 9 years, and on July 16th I will re-enter "the workforce". Seriously, it sounds like I'll be entering into another galaxy. I've been home since my son was born (my daugther was born two years later!), and it's just been great. I wouldn't go back and change a thing. I have LOVED being home with them. Besides, I'm way too much of a control freak to have sent them to daycare or anywhere else for that matter. Even though I feel ready for this new phase of my life, I know that I'll have some bittersweet moments. For instance, I just can't wrap my head around the fact that I don't have babies anymore! They are 7 and 9! I know that initially I will feel like I'm just "playing"---you know, when I get to wear pretty clothes and drive to a new fun office downtown. Kind of like "Career Barbie" , if you will. By the way, I'm not really going to be a Corporate Diva. I'm a Social Worker! But, I still get the pretty clothes and funky downtown office.
