I bit the bullet and filed my resignation effective May 4. I am excited and sad at the same time. Sad because I am leaving my home for the last ten years. Happy, as I am counting the days until I wake up and find entwined hands of my family in the bed.
Many moms in my situation have given various warnings -- losing myself, not being able to buy all the things that you want, 24/7 work versus 8 hours but I am all up for it.
Breastfeeding and parenting will be my life. This is the life.
