My new job.

35w 4d

Happy Birthday Mom!! I hope you have a wonderful day!

Welcome baby Owen! My cyber-friend Shannon gave birth to Owen this morning, almost 4 days late! Guess the threat of an induction scared him out of there! Congrats Shannon and Sean, can't wait to see him!

Behold, my new alarm clock. I prefer the "purr" setting for wake-up calls:

That's right, I am officially in baby-retirement. My last day at work was Thursday and so far, I have enjoyed my time off and cannot wait to start crossing things off of my list of to-dos. In case you never noticed, I really didn't write about work or what my plans were for when the baby came pertaining to work. I did not want to get Dooced.

Paul and I always agreed on me being a semi-stay at home mom. I say semi because there are still things I am going to be doing to bring in some compensation, just not at the level that I was at my full-time job. We never wanted to have to take BL to day care or have someone else watch him during the day and we are very lucky to be able to have me stay home and raise him. This is going to be a whole new world for me since I have been working either part-time or full-time since high school (with little breaks here and there). I am fully prepared (I think) to be a stay-at-home mom and wife and I am sure it will add to some fun stories for this blog. It will also be creating some minor changes as well in the form of later posts, gasp! days without posts and the horror! even some ads? We shall see!

Okay, I am off to do laundry or clean something. How am I doing so far?

Welcome to SAH-momdom! It is wonderful--and has it's own rhythm. Don't fret about the days you don't even get dressed (and there will be those)...I am enjoying one myself right now...with plenty of cleaning that can wait to be done. Hope you get your to-do list crossed off! And don't forget to relax before baby comes--take time now to veg-out and put your feet up!

Happy Baby retirement! I've been in it for 8 years. Don't know what I'm going to do when I actually go back to work! :)

Enjoy your last few weeks "off" until BL gets here! Can't wait to read that post!! Tell Shannon I said congrats as I won't be able to get on the board for a few more days (not that she is checking it I'm sure)
