Well, it's happened. I am no longer employed. I am officially a house bunny/ m.i.l.f in training. This has been my first full week off of work, and so far so good. (Though you might want to check back in a few weeks and make sure I'm not talking to myself or playing with puppets, aka being craycray). My days have consisted of blog stalking, lots of Chick Fil A, a little bit of event planning (www.southernsassevents.com), lots of daytime tv watching (Lord help me I watch lots of Rachael Ray and The OC), reading, and working on the nursery. Luckily I havent been so bored that I started bugging people, but dont worry I have my dad, husband, and top three besties on stand by in case I need an intervention.
I have to say I'm really sad about leaving the boys. The T-boys were my life for 3.5 years. I laughed with them, cried with them, watched them grow, and hopefully made an impact in their lives. Their family is my family, and while I know that we will continue to remain close my heart still aches. Little T was only 2 years old when I started. He rocked diapers, went to school for 9 hours a week, and served as my partner in crime while we did everything together. Now little man is in kindergarten, plays soccer and basketball, reads to me, and is fiercely funny and independent. Big T was in half a day pre-k and struggled a little bit with "first child syndrome". My heart ached seeing people not appreciate how kind and intelligent he was. Now he flourishes in 2nd grade, is a math genius, has an amazing group of friends, and is one of the most kind and sincere human beings that I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. It doesnt surprise me that these boys are so amazing considering the parents that they come from. I was truly blessed to have been brought into their family, and I will forever cherish our relationship.
Now I am blessed with the opportunity to raise my own little bundle of joy. I can dedicate all of my time and energy to being the best possible versions of mom and wife for my family. I am forever grateful to my husband for this opportunity. I hope I rock my new job titles.
