I finally did it!!!! Tuesday will be my last day of work!
It was probably the hardest choice I have ever had to make and I went back and forth over and over again over the course of my maternity leave. I even went as far as hiring a nanny for the girls so that I could go back to work (I love my job). Daycare is impossible to find for babies less than a year in Alaska. I suppose to my benefit our nanny quit before she started, leaving me short one nanny and back at square one on the stay home or work decision making dilemma. Well as you can see I finally decided!! It came down to this advice from a friend "You have your whole life to work but only a few years to spend with your kids when they are little". It is so true. I am happier than I have ever been and starting my journey in excelling at being a Mom! Yay!
