Sunday through Tuesday is Convention. I was so excited about it… I love the sessions I’m able to attend. I love learning new things, and being able to apply those to my own job to better myself. I love meeting new people, who love Great Clips as much as I do.
But did you notice I said “was”?
I just put Aurora to sleep, and started crying. Tomorrow will be the first day of her life that I won’t put her to bed. Monday will be the first day of her life that we will not see each other at all.
😭 This mom is a heartbroken mess right now!
…Sometimes. Particularly when I really just want to sleep, but I have to pump before bed.
Nursing is wonderful. Pumping is the worst!
You’ve written a novel of a post, then your phone screen rotates and everything disappears.
I guess I’m not posting about daycare this morning.
Being back at work takes up so much of my time! And is a little on the overwhelming side, especially when 3 of 5 salons are short staffed. I feel so busy, always. But honestly, I love it! I miss Aurora like crazy when I’m working. But I feel like successful, working, badass mom was the role in life I was made for! As much as I hate leaving her at daycare, I love dropping her off. Walking in with all the other parents and their little ones. Knowing I’m on my way to a job I love, and kick butt at. Getting to be a strong female role model for my daughter when she grows up. It is great!
Plus, baby snuggles are almost better after a long day at work.
Criminal Minds is finally on Netflix. I feel guilty for not reading to Aurora as much. But I am addicted! I have been waiting for this since we got Netflix. Plus, Aurora and I can enjoy snuggles and play time while I binge watch Criminal Minds.
Survived my first week back at work/Aurora’s first week of daycare.
I will post high points and low points, some time this weekend. For now, I have a sleeping baby, so I shall sleep, too.
Great Clips is definitely a great stepping stone for new stylists. We only do haircuts. Occasionally styles and perms, but mostly haircuts. Which gives stylists the ability to really master that skill, if they can. (Trust me, just because you go to cosmetology school, does not mean you can cut hair. I have trained too many stylists to know that.) But if you work hard, like you have to do at any job worth having, and have the desire to, you can also turn Great Clips into a great career.
Working only at Great Clips since cosmetology school, I was able to buy our house, The Hubby is not on the loan. I pay all the bills, and still put $250 into savings each month.
Great Clips is not for everyone, whether it be that you work there or get your hair cut there. But it’s not fair to post libel, saying that you can’t make it into a profitable career. I work for one of the oldest franchises in the corporation, and we have many stylists who have made Great Clips their career. I’ve made it mine, and it is Gonna Be Great!
Mini rant. Sorry, not sorry. I love Great Clips, and it irks me that so many stylists look down on one of the leaders in our industry, because of this (untrue) stigma.
