A NEW CHAPTER


Guess what? I've been keeping a little secret!

This week marks my last week in the business world. As of this Friday, these two little boys by the names of Camden and Grayson will be my new boss(es).

Honestly, ever since Grayson was born we've been debating having me stay at home full time, but haven't taken the leap until now (special thanks to Billy for being so supportive and hardworking!) I am SO excited, and am looking forward to spending my days with these tiny humans that fill up my heart so much! Most of you know I've worked part-time for the past two years since Camden was born, so I'm hoping (maybe?) that this won't be a huge change and that they won't get sick of me... ;)

I give working moms an insane amount of credit, and I also give stay at home moms so much credit. I don't believe one is "harder" than the other - they both have their advantages and disadvantages. As for our plans? I have zero so far, other than us jetting off to Florida next week (I think I'll call this my retirement trip, just so we have an extra excuse to celebrate ha) other than to make as MANY memories as possible. I do plan to go back to work at some point (I enjoy having something out of the house that is 'mine'), so this doesn't mean I'm not going to work outside the home ever again, but you best believe I will be soaking up all the weeks I will have with them in the mean time. Everyone keeps telling me how I won't regret this decision and I know that they are 100% right! I feel really thankful and grateful that I have the opportunity to be home with them now, while they're still really little.

My last day of work is Thursday and then I'm a free woman! Some champs for us and apple juice for them will most definitely be in order. And maybe some Halo Top for dessert because you just can't beat the Sea Salt Caramel flavor. You just can't. Alright, now that I'm getting carried away planning my "last day of work" meal, I'll get going but I'm so excited to share in this journey (the ups-the downs-you name it) with you guys, and as always...thanks you thank you thank you for following along!

    1. Hi Emily! Congrats to you too. The cost of childcare (Even part time) for 2 kids was a big reason, along with the fact that this way my husband can give more attention to his job, and just wanting to spend time with them when they're little!

  10. Congratulations! I stayed home for 10 months with my daughter. I went back to work because I needed out of the house and she needed time with someone other than mom :) It works out now, I work part time and she's two and now in a PreK2 program. Working and SAHM moms work their butts off!!
