There is life after baby, I promise!
I, like many other women had a career epiphany after having my son. My life refocussed and a career change was inevitable.
When I first held him in my arms I knew that I didn’t want to be apart from him. I just couldn’t so Mr and I discussed and we decided that I would be able to be a stay at home mom.
Being a SAHM comes with many challenges. I’ve been earning my own money since I had my first part time job at a video store when I was 16 years old. Basically relinquishing my financial independence and allowing Mr to take the reins was unsettling for me, to say the least.
I decided to pursue my lifelong dream of becoming a writer and published 27 books to date while staying at home with my son.
I have also started this blog, which was something I always wanted to do, but I was too scared to take the plunge.
A new passion was ignited in me, I want to live life to the fullest and show my son that he can follow his dreams too.
I love being able to work from home to help and track his development on a day to day basis.
He gives me the purpose and drive to be the best version of myself I can be.
I look forward to growing with him as the years progress.
I look forward to celebrating both our milestones together.
I am grateful to have my son in my life to remind me that my goals are always closer and easier to achieve than I thought. I’m also grateful for the life lesson he has taught me – things that take hard work can bring you the most joy.
