One day I looked around and my kids were just that - KIDS! At 4 and not quite 2 years old I stopped and realized they were growing up WAY TOO FAST and I was missing it! My babies were already gone and I didn't want to miss another moment.
Luckily I lost my job.
it's not quite that simple. My place of employment closed in
August 2013 and after much discussion and thought - not to mention many, many
lists made - we decided that I would not look for another job. Instead I
would take the year off and stay home with the children. A year with them - full time.
The fates laughed at our plans (as they do) and now I have a very part-time job that is just enough to help relax us all. So I guess the fates may have laughed at my plan, but it turned out for the best.
I'm trying to enjoy my year with them.
