I quit my job today!!!

OK, so I agreed to stay 'til the end of Januaury, but there's a light at the end of the tunnel! I feel like this HUGE weight has been lifted from my shoulders. I'm so excited that I can't even put it into words.

I never, ever thought I'd want to be a SAHM (never thought I'd have a baby either, but what do you know? ). I got to stay home for the first 3 1/2 months, but I've worked for the past 4 months. I've gone to work with a sick, guilty feeling every day.

DS crawled on all fours for the first time a few days ago- while I was at work! That sealed the deal. DH is finally onboard and convinced that we can make it work.

Just wanted to share my excitement with people who will actually understand how I'm feeling (did I mention how happy I am?).

Good for you, mama! There is nothing better then being able to stay home with your dc. It will be so worth it and rewarding, you will not regret it!
Enjoy every minute of it-it goes fast! Congrats on your awesome decision.

Congratulations. Our DC are small for such a short time and when you think about it we have them for a short time in life you hate to miss all those little things. You missed the crawling, but you'll be there for the walking. I am soooo happy for you.
