Congratulations! What an exciting time of change for you. I am also heading over to this side - Aug 20 will be my last day of work. I SAH for 1 year after DS was born but felt like I had to go back for $. Within a few months DH and I knew it was a mistake so back home I go and I am beyond excited, though the financial sacrifices will be hard at times.
I think it's good to remind ourselves that it won't be all unicorns and rainbows. Though sometimes I let myself think it will be - I've had a few holiday days lately and they have been pure bliss. Good days in our house are REALLY good and they far outnumber the bad. My challenge will be to keep it that way.
Happy mumma to my boys Henny Tom (Nov 30, 2008), Arlo Odie (Oct 5, 2010), and baby SISTER! due mid-Dec 2014.
