The Million Dollar Question

One of the most common questions people ask me now a days is:
"Are you going back to work or are you staying home with Grant??"
I couldn't honestly answer that question.
Until today.
I met with my team lead today and told her that I had decided to take a better job (and I had an awesome job to start with!!).
The pay is a WHOLE, WHOLE lot less.
There will be no bonuses or raises.
No annual reviews.
No paid professional licensure dues.
The hours are a lot longer.
I can't leave work early on certain days.
I have to work days, nights and weekends.
I don't get vacation or sick time.
I have to work all holidays.
I can't call in for "mental health" days.
But meet my new co-worker...

Isn't he super cute???!!!!

We plan to have lots of "working lunches," "team building exercises," "performance reviews," and "coachings."

I can't fire him....I am in it for the long haul.

In two weeks I will turn in my key and clean out my desk. I will be starting the job that I have always wanted to do.

I am going to be a Stay At Home Mom!!

I have been trying to decide who I think he looks like... I see a little of both sides in him but Collin gets the credit in this picture. I can tell he's a happy baby!
