Since I quit my job to become a full time SAHM, I am really appreciating having more quality alone time with n. I know these years will go by fast, and I will never have another chance to invest in him during his early childhood. I love that we can stop by the park after dropping k off at school and not rush home to my computer and the stress that often ensued.
Yes, sacrifices have to be made, but to me, it has been 100% worth it.
(I have also enjoyed being able to volunteer in k’s classroom. Today, her classmates actually cheered when the teacher told them that I would be helping out with their upcoming handmade ice cream day. It is not often that one receives such accolades.)
