No pictures for this one, but I have some exciting news to share. My last day of work is February 13th!!! I went back to work on January 5th, and I really have not liked being back. I went back because my works insurance plan is really great and I thought that we couldn't get on Jared's plan until their open enrollment time in May. BUT my great boss and even better friend, Melanie, told me that if I leave my job then that counts as a "qualifying event" that I could get on Jared's insurance before their open enrollment. Thank goodness for Melanie mentioning that. So Jared checked with his HR person and we found out that Melanie was right. When I told her that I was quitting she gave me hug. She could tell how unhappy I was and she remember when SHE had to go back to work after having her kids--she remembers hating it too. So, after the 13th I get to be Sam's FULL TIME MOM and I couldn't be happier. And Jared has also been great to support me in this. He knows more than anyone how I felt about going back to work--I LOVE you Jared.

Congrats!!! You are going to LOVE being a Stay-at-home Mom! Sure, it's challenging sometimes, okay, a lot of times- but it's so worth it. I'm really happy for you.

Horray! I didn't realize until I was an adult and had FRIENDS that were working Moms that ALL moms that have to work HATE it!
SO happy that you guys can afford to have you quit and that you get to "just" be sam's mom! Awesome.
