Last night I wrote a very important letter, it was a scary letter to write… my resignation from my job. My husband and I have decided that the best thing for the family right now is for me to be a SAHM. I am excited but also apprehensive, I have never resigned from a job without having the next one lined up, it feels strange to be floating in the ether.
I know that I do have a ‘job’ even though I definitely don’t see being a mummy to Boo as a job but it is what I am going to spend my days (and nights) doing. I am excited because it means I get to spend lots of time with Boo and because I can have a think about what job I would like to do in the future, and possibly look into training.
My current plan is to spend the next 1-2 years at home with Boo and possibly doing some form of part time training, and then look for a part time job until Boo is older, and then go back full time when I feel Boo is old enough. I know that plans change, but this is the rough plan I feel suits my little family best.
It’s exciting and scary at the same time, Boo will be my boss and I don’t think she is going to go easy on me!
