I realized that I haven’t posted here for about a week or so. This post is to touch base with you guys to let you know I didn’t fall off the face of the earth. It seems that real life has been getting between me and my keyboard.
Careful What You Wish (Plan) For
Many moons ago when my hubby and I were planning to have children, I was working at a full time job. I remember saying that we should try to plan it so we can have our children right before the summer so that I could take the entire summer off for maternity leave.
Apparently our plan worked out perfectly. My first child was born in June and my second child in May. That was many moons ago and I had two summers off to spend with my children.
Fast Forward to 2010
Now many moons later, my children are no longer toddlers. My plan to have children right before the summer seemed perfectly fine back then, but I didn’t think about the fact that when they grow up everything happens right around May and June. There are things called proms, formals, graduations, Mother’s day, Father’s day, oh, yeah, almost forgot, birthdays too (and I won’t tell you the story about Grandpa). I kinda feel like a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs.
I’m not complaining. I wouldn’t have it any other way. I just look back and think…if I had to do it all over again, I wouldn’t have to worry about maternity leave. I now work from home and can take the time off as I need it. I can’t imagine how I would have handled these couple of months if I had to work at a 9-5 job.
