Career Change

Today was my first day at my new job. The position offers $0 pay, the hours are 24/7, and there are no such thing as "vacations" or "sick days".

But (this is a big but) it also offers unlimited hugs & cuddles, about a 20 foot commute, my new boss is a total cutie, and I have the ability to wear my pj's to work if I feel like it :)

If you haven't guessed yet...I'm a stay-at-home-mom (SAHM)!!!!!

This is something that Son and I have been praying for since before I was even pregnant, but we were obviously working on our time table, not the Lord's. However, on Friday the decision was taken out of our hands when I was laid-off from my position.

Don't you just love it when Jesus smacks you in the face with His plan for your life?

Today was probably one of the most exhausting and challenging days of my life (way harder than the 15k) but I will also say that it was one of the absolute best days ever...and the thought that I get to repeat it over and over is so exciting to me.

So far week #1 is super busy with things that I want together done, but we also have lots and lots of play time and cuddle time on the schedule too!

My new boss...isn't he adorable?

More details to come...

Congratulations on your new position!! It is fun (but then there are days where I wish I was leaving the house & Jonathan was staying home)... it's definitely worth it though. So happy that God has allowed it to be a part of your family, since its not His Will for everyone. whoo hoo!

I am soooo excited for you guys! I know Collin is going to love having you home all day long.

I am so excited for you, Julie! I know that this is something you guys have been praying about for so long... it is so neat to see how God works... even when you try to work on your own time table and then He just steps in and takes over again - not always understood but definitely always for the best. I know that Collin is going to love having you home! We will be praying for you guys during this adjustment that God will work everything out financially for your family. (As I am sure that he already has.) Miss you guys!

I have to say that the pay you receive is PRICELESS!!!

God has a great way of smacking us right in the face when we need it. I had a friend dealing with the same thing when she had her fist baby and was let go from her job too. Staying at home is DEFINITELY WAY more rewarding that any sick days, vacation days, or salary though! Welcome to the SAHM World!
