It's in the mail

For the first time in years I'm applying for a job. And not just any job, a job I really really want. I've been watching the Classifieds every week for the ad for this particular job. I was starting to think it was never gping to show up. Then yesterday it appeared. "Wanted: a breastfeeding peer helper" Yes! Finally! I sat down and wrote a resume and what I hope is an awesome cover letter. I. Want. This. Job. I want it very very badly. More than I've wanted anything in a long time.

I know the time has come when we can no longer afford for me to be a stay at home mom. Preschool tuition, the need for another car and the want to own our own home someday make it impossible. We need to be a two income family. Or Ben needs a raise, a really big raise. Since that's most likely not going to happen, it's time for me to venture out into the work force.

So, my resume is in the mail! If all my lovely readers could send me some "get the job" vibes, or even say a quick prayer, I would appreciate it.

Yay for finding something you really want to do. What exactly is a breastfeeding peer helper?

Ditto to H2's comment.

A breastfeeding peer helper helps pregnant women & nursing women with questions or concerns that they might have about breastfeeding. Actually, I'm sort of hazy on the details :) We don't have a lactation consultant at our WIC office, so I'm guessing that it's going to be somewhat similar to what a lactation consultant would do.
