Since the day I went back to work after having Kate I’ve always dreamed of being able to stay at home with my girls. However, I knew that was not the path that was chosen for me. I’ve worked for almost 14 and a half years and I absolutely love my job. Don’t get me wrong, there are days that my job is a challenge, but I’ve always worked with wonderful people and families.
Six months ago Danny and I were sitting at a table trying to decide if this is finally the time for me to stay home with our girls. After several months of talking about me leaving work and running all the numbers, we finally came to a decision. I have decided, effective next month, I’ll be leaving my job that I’ve had for 14 years. This was probably one of the hardest decisions I’ve had to make.
However, we are finally in a position where I’m able to stay at home and spend more time with the girls after school. I still hope to do some work with my job, but I’ll get to pick and choose the times that work for me. I’ll also continue to work for Stitch Fix. I’m so excited that I’ll have more flexibility to be able to volunteer at the school and do some things that I love and want to do. I’m going to miss my coworkers but this isn’t “goodbye”, it’s just “see you later”. I hope to one day go back to my job but for now, I’m going to enjoy spending more time with Danny and the girls. I can’t wait to see what the future holds for us and I know God has a plan.
