Sometimes when we need it most, life will give us a sign and help point us in the right direction. Who knows, maybe it really is just a coincidence...but it helps us feel like we are doing the right thing--and hey, that's OK too. So we've made the decision to rent our condo in Hermosa Beach, and rent a Townhome in Fresno. I've been struggleling with the decision...wondering why I ever even thought it was a good idea in the first place....but tonight I remembered, and suddenly all my fear and second guessing has evaporated.
You and I went to the grocery store tonight. I was wearing you in the Bjorn and we were walking around having little conversations like we always do, carrying on like we were the only two lovebirds in the store. A nice old lady came up to me and commented on how beautiful you are. She then said, "you're a stay at home mom, aren't you? I was a teacher for 20 years and you can always tell the stay at home moms because of the difference in their children. You can tell every time." I was able to proclaim, with pride, "I will be in about 4 weeks." She said, "It is the best gift you can give to your child." So, oneday you will only know me as your mommy...not as a working professional. In fact, I might even bore you with my, "When I used to work...." stories. You'll just have to bear with me on that one.
I'm so excited for you and for me and for dad and for us.
I love you.
