Hello everyone! I've been working a lot lately, and that is going to change very soon. I already gave my work a heads up that my 2 weeks notice is coming, and I am in the process of writing one to my son's daycare. That's right...I'm going to be a stay at home mom!
After really looking at everything going on, my husband and I decided that I will be staying at home starting September 1. I stayed home with my coconut for a year and loved every second of it. I realize some moms prefer working, but I am not one of them. After being a working mother and a stay at home mother, I realized I love staying at home. I never want away time from my son. When I stayed at home, my "me" time was his naps and when I went to the hair salon. That's all I need.
I went back to work when my son was 15 months, got a promotion, and made great friendships and relationships. The only problems is with my husband's career the hours just don't mesh. At first, I was upset about leaving a good job with great benefits. However, I've been meditating and realized this has been a blessing in disguise. I am always so sad at work (even if I don't show it) because all I want is to cuddle, read, and play with my coconut. I am blessed to be able to stay home and help him learn. I get to teach him about everything a toddler needs to, and I have so many fun activities in mind. Don't worry guys, I will definitely share with you! I will have more time to develop more recipes, make videos, crafts, and really up my blog game.
As sad as I am to leave my co-workers, I can't wait to be a stay at home mother. Just call me CEO of the McCann household ;)
Are you a stay at home mom? What activities do you like to do with your little ones?
