Thanks to everyone for the kind words and support of my new job! Yesterday was a very, very good day. I worked for about four hours during Levi’s two naps and was able to take him to his midday music class. It was a million times more fun to be there with him after his morning nap than at the end of the work day when he is tired and cranky.
Although my plan as a VPTWAHM is to only put in 2-3 hours of work a day, I’m finishing up a couple of big projects and am also training my full-time replacement. Yes, I am giving up some of my responsibilities in order to scale back my hours, but I’m perfectly content with that. Of course, I expect that not every day will be a dream with Levi, and there certainly will be an adjustment period, but I’m so excited for this new chapter of my life.
