For as long as I can remember I’ve wanted to be a mom. Now that I actually am one I can say it is 100 times better than I ever imagined.
Nicholas is turning one in a few weeks and I’ve been super emotional about it. I was feeling like time was flying by and I was spending more time at my office than I was with him. We’ve been lucky that he is a good sleeper, but honestly on week nights it was like rush home, play for a few minutes, feed Nicholas dinner, give him a bath and go to bed. It was really weighing on me to only be with him for a few hours each day.
MJD and I had been talking about this for a long while, but my ultimate goal was always to transition out of corporate life and be home with our family. As of last week, I left my job to make this dream a reality. I’m officially a stay at home mama to my sweet boy! I feel so grateful to have this opportunity and thankful to MJD for being so supportive.
Working mom life is not for the faint of heart and I applaud all the mamas- whether you work in an office, stay home with your kiddos, work part time, work for yourself, whatever you do. Wish I could buy each of you a bottle of champagne and a big cup of coffee! I know it’s been said before being a mom is both the hardest and best job ever. I really didn’t understand this fully until I experienced it myself.
I’m so excited about this next chapter for me and my family! Thank you to all of you who sent sweet messages yesterday when I shared the news on Instagram. I appreciate it so much!
