Today is the day that I could have been dropping my girls off at daycare before the sun had risen. Today is the day that I could have walked back into the school’s front doors and sat down in my office after a four month hiatus. And, today is the day that our lives could have gone back to the hustle and bustle with two parents working full-time and children in daycare full-time.
But, instead of that day, today is the day I take Beckett to her montessori preschool. And, pack up Camden for a walk in the sunshine (I can wish, can’t I?) along the bay. I can pull dinner out before 5:00pm and settle into a relaxing afternoon at home. It’s the continuation of a life we’ve been leading for four months.
I am so at peace with my decision. I loved – LOVED – my job. Between the staff, students and work I excelled at – it was a place I called home and truly enjoyed being. But, these two girls are my priority and deserve this. I am unbelievably blessed to be able to swing it financially and have the means to make it happen.
I look forward to what today brings and tomorrow holds.
