Last Friday was my last day in my cubical, in the corporate world, under florescent lights with no window, doing a job that I hated. I quit my job and walked out with no regrets.
I came home and celebrated my last day with Vinny. Over ice cream, of course.
This decision did not come easy and was discussed time and time again
in our house. With 2 kids attending daycare, the cost that entails
along with the time not spent with them did not outweigh my biweekly
paycheck. Life is short. Our babies are only babies for so long.
These are the best days of our lives and I don't want to miss a beat
being stuck in an office, doing a job that I don't love. So after some
number crunching and some serious thought and consideration Chris & I
decided that I will stay home.
I'm ecstatic and am in
love with this decision. Being home with my babies also means that I
can focus and pursue my photography more. It's what I truly love to do
and I'm hoping this opportunity allows me to further that career. It's
been my dream for years to be able to stay home while pursuing
photography and now it's all coming true. I couldn't be happier. Life
Altho I know staying home with 2 kids is
going to have it's challenges, I'm completely ready to face them. There
are days where it's going to be hard. But the days making memories
with my kids far outweigh those tough days. There's nowhere I'd rather
be than home.
