Happy Birthday!

September has been crazy!! Heck this whole year has been crazy! My maternity leave officially ended last week but with the teachers strike still in affect I couldn’t go back to work even if I wanted to (which I didn’t). It bought me a little more time to make my big decision. I have officially decided to be a stay at home mom!! It was a very tough decision financially but emotionally and mentally it was the easiest decision I’ve made. I will still work one day a week on-call which will be nice too. A day where I can get away from the house and have adult conversations all day! YEAH!

 So along with a huge career move, squishing in a few more beach days and planning my little man’s first birthday it has been a crazy few weeks. He is one! ONE!!! That just baffles my mind thinking that a year has gone by. But it’s been a great year filled with challenges, excitement, anxiety, stress, change, fun, and laughter…. but most of all…. love. I feel completely different from where I was a year ago and not just because I’m not waddling around carrying another human inside my body. I feel at peace and content with where I am mentally, spiritually, emotionally and physically and couldn’t imagine my life any other way. It has been an amazing year and I loved celebrating his first birthday and my first birthday as a mom.
