How wonderful you are starting a new job with others also new to it. I remember how it felt starting a new job. Right when I wanted to look the smartest, I knew the least and made the most mistakes. It 'goes with the territory.' Darn!

When I was in a somewhat similar situation to yours, I didn't want things to be different, either. I wanted them to be how they once were. My pretty simple expectations were that they could and would continue indefinitely. I didn't want to be the one to have to change because my eldest son did, but I was living in the past instead of facing the present. I can really relate to your remark; 'I actually loved having my son around (before all this carry on started that is.)
