Well it's official, I've decided not to go back to work. I'm joining the world of stay at home moms. I've been going back and forth with this decision throughout my 12 week maternity leave. I have always worked since I was 17 so this was a big decision for me, but it took us 5 years to have Kyle and the reality is we are not sure if we will be able to have another one. This could be a once in a lifetime opportunity to stay home and raise our child. I feel this way, even though I have enjoyed my job the last 8 years, I can always find another job some day if I need to, but I can't hit rewind on Kyle growing up again.
So, I'm excited to start this new adventure in my life. My husband is of course very happy I will be staying home with Kyle, but he is also glad I'm not going back to work because now we can spend more time in North Carolina. Because my job had been so busy we could only get down there about once a year for a week or two at a time and now we can spend a couple months if we want to. This will be fun.
So if any of you stay at home moms or former stay at home moms have any words of wisdom for me please email me and let me know. I would love to hear from you.
